easy coffee table diy project

If you’re trying to decorate your home on a budget, DIY projects are often the way to make it happen. After desperately looking for the perfect coffee table for a few months, I couldn’t seem to find what I wanted at my price point. Living without a proper coffee table has its own set of challenges so it was time to find a solution. I stumbled upon a great roundup that listed a variety of ideas to embellish IKEA furniture on Apartment Therapy – I was immediately sold!
These tables couldn’t be easier to put together and I love the simple yet elegant finished look. It’s also a really budget-friendly project as each table can be made for under $25! If you’ve ever shopped at IKEA (and who hasn’t!), you’re probably familiar with their incredibly popular LACK side tables. These are now also made with a high gloss surface – for a few extra dollars – which adds a little dose of luxury and shine. I bought two of them, and then glued a few decorative brass corners over each corner of the table. You can find the corners at most hardware stores for about $5 for a pack of 4. Mine are from Canadian Tire but they are easy to find at the Home Depot or Home Hardware as well.

The result is an embellished table with a little bit of added personality!
