DIY Nesting Coffee Tables – Ikea Hack

Coffee Table 2

Hi friends! I’m super excited to share with you this super easy, total overhaul of these nesting coffee tables. It was so easy, just spray paint and bam! In just 3 easy steps, you can take these cute little tables from looking like a run of the mill, boring coffee table to a total glam showstopper! Let’s do this!

Vittsjo Nesting Tables

Gold Spray Paint

White Spray Paint

I ordered my Ikea tables because my closest Ikea is about an hour and a half away and let’s face it, I did not wanna load up my 4 kiddos for a road trip when Ikea or Amazon will deliver it right to my door. Yep, you can get it on Amazon people!

Coffee Tables assembled

I got it home and assembled it. Ikea is notorious for ridiculous assembly sessions but this was a breeze. For reals. Next,I took my absolute favorite spray paint on the planet and sprayed the whole thing with a few even coats. Make sure to spray lightly and let it dry thoroughly in between each coat. It will be worth the wait, annoying as it is to wait, I promise.

Rustoleum Gold

Now, I totally could’ve left it like this. Gorgeous right? BUT it looked a little dark for me. I knew I wanted something lighter on the bottom. I toyed with the idea of stenciling, wood grain contact paper, replacing it with a mirror, etc but ultimately decided I wanted white. Thanks to Savannah for helping me via FaceTime. We design best that way. 😉

Coffee Table Painted

I used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover 2x in White Satin on the bottom piece. I probably should’ve used a primer because it took a few more coats than I would have liked but ended up working just fine. Then, I let the whole thing dry and that was it!  Seriously, so easy!!! I think it looks way more expensive and stylish!
