In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.

And while this detail could mean that it’s a perfect opportunity for this piece to blend in and to stay neutral, another option is for the vanity and its complementary stool to stand out and to serve as accent details. The stool itself becomes an accessory able to impact the room’s décor and style. The accessories which can be added to the duo are numerous, a mirror with lights being just one of them.

The headboard wasn’t attached to the bed frame so when the entire structure was pulled up to free up the floor space, this accessory remained on the wall, serving as a decoration. Adding a hanging bed with a pulley system to a cabin was a clever move and a practical decision taken by the designer. Given the limited floor space, this allows a single room to change function easily, transforming from a bedroom into a living space.

In case you have some extra wallpaper or if you simply like the look, an interesting idea is to cover the top of the coffee table with wallpaper and maybe even coordinate with your ceiling or accent wall. It’s a simple and inexpensive upgrade and a great way to rejuvenate an old table with water stains on it. But enough with the coffee tables. Let’s also take a look at some projects involving the Lack side table. A very interesting idea is to cover the top of the table with pennies. For the project you need wood moulding, black paint, a picture frame mount, reinforced glass and around 621 pennies. It’s not a fast project but if you have time and patience, go for it.

You don’t have to build the frame from scratch, if the mirror already had one. Just one pallet wood to frame it. Cut four pieces of wood, arrange them and glue them to the existing frame and mirror.. Then use nails to keep them in place. With this method you can also adjust the shape and size of a mirror without havign to cut it. The best way to get a rustic look is by using weathered wood. To build a mirror frame similar to this one, use 4-6 mirror clips and some lumber. Cut the wood pieces and screw them together. Check to see if the mirror fits and then mark where you want to add the clips. Attach the clips and make sure they’re not too tight.

For example, this one has a compact and robust look and it integrates really well in the industrial loft interior. Concrete coffee tables come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and designs and that’s due to the malleability of the material. This particular table, for example, uses an asymmetrical design to stand out and, at the same time, to be as functional as possible. Jeremy Kaplan Design takes the whole concept to a whole new level, offering a series of cast concrete tables for both indoor and outdoor use that feature wood inserts, storage at the top and bottom and interesting geometric shapes.

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.
Travers Moreau Furniture, 2018-01-26 23:49:05. Ikea Lack coffee tables are extremely versatile and they can even change function if you desire such a project. For example, you can turn such a table into a comfortable tufted ottoman. You might have to cut the legs a bit to make them shorter. Then use foam and fabric to make the cozy seat cushion and attach it to the table. There’s more than one way to give this coffee table a new look. So how about adding some mid-century charm to the mix? For this project you only need to use the top of the Lack table. You also need to find some tapered legs to use with it. So basically install the legs and make sure they’re symmetrical and stable.

And since mirrors are so versatile and part of every home’s interior design, they’re the perfect choice. If it’s the look you care about and not necessarily the authenticity of the item, you can even build the frame yourself and make it look rustic. Sometimes it’s just easier to make something yourself than to try to find the item in stores or at yard sales. It’s why we’ll start with a few DIYs. The materials needed for the first one include a large pine board, wide enough for you to attach a mirror to it and to leave some space around the edges, 4 trim pieces, 4 detailed interior trim pieces and a dark stain of your choice.
Brie Quiron Furniture, 2018-01-26 23:49:05. 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.
