Ikea Coffee Table Hack in a Summertime Sunroom!
Oh yes! Just in time for summer! We took this forgotten sunroom and used our favorite Ikea Coffee Table Hack (so far) to breathe new life into it!
Lots of changes were necessary to completely transform this room so we began planning and looking for inspiration as soon as we got the project. We knew at the onset of the design that we needed a large coffee table to anchor the seating area. Because the room was a rather large open space, a central focal point, like a coffee table, would definitely work well. The client also wanted a way to provide individual smaller tables to accommodate various items during large gatherings because they entertain a lot. While we could have gone with traditional nesting tables, we decided on something a bit more unique with a bit more flair. All based on an Ikea favorite; the Lack Side Table. Let the hacking begin!
We basically used 12 tables to create six (8 for the coffee table & 4 for the side tables). A $9.99 per table even 12 is still a steal! We simply took one Lack table, flipped it over, screwed on the 4 legs, and took the another one (tabletop only) and attached it the bottom.
That’s it! If you wanted, you could stop right here and still have a unique looking table for about $20, but we took it a step further by adding some trim and painting it white. For the end tables, we used 19 inch panels from one of our favorite vendors (MyOverlays.com) and glued them to the tables for a more unique and refined look. In the end we felt that the trim and panels is what really made these individual ‘pieces’ feel like a set.
Our clients loved the finished product and so did we!
Please, let us know what you think of our idea? Would you have added the trim? We want to hear from you.
