Our enthusiasm for DIY projects involving Ikea products led us to explore a bit more the versatility of the Ikea Lack Table. There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
Flexibility is an important element that defines the design of the Socrate media stand. The unit is composed of a series of metal bookcases and cabinets which can be combined to form a large module or used separately. Available in both wall-mounted and freestanding versions, the system can suit a variety of spaces and decors. The inspiration for the Calibro console came from the design of an old ammunition chest in the Great Wars. Designed by Daniele Cristiano, this is a very versatile piece of furniture which can serve a variety of purposes. Use it as a media unit in the living room or as a bench for the entrance hallway. It can also be placed in the bedroom. The simplicity of the Domino Up TV cabinet is complemented by its beautiful blue color, resulting in a harmonious combination of looks and function. The cabinet sits on a slim black platform which makes it look like the unit is floating or wall-mounted, assuming that the floor is dark as well.
Once you cut the board to size, set the mirror in the middle and measure and cut the trim pieces. Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.
