These Ikea coffee tables were almost perfect but needed some personality so I made my own DIY Coffee Table using the Vittsjo Coffee Table from Ikea!
Hi friends! I’m super excited to share with you this super easy, total overhaul of these nesting ikea 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!
I ordered my Ikea coffee 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!
DIY Coffee Table
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.
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. 😉
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! You’d never know this was a DIY Coffee Table. I love how chic it looks!
