Last week I performed a little Ikea hack on my dining room Ikea Jokkmokk table. My initial idea was to remove the legs, replace them with hairpin legs, then sand and re-stain the top.
I will admit, I often have grand diy ideas but my execution often doesn't pan out. I am happy to say that this time around, everything worked perfectly. My table turned out better than I could have imagined and I absolutely LOVE it. Plus the whole hack was SO simple....just a few easy steps.
Remove legs and trim - just a few screws.
I bought hairpin legs from this shop on eBay for $50 and screwed them to each of the four corners. I placed each one about an inch in from the edge.
That is all I did. Besides drying time in between the two coats of stain, this whole project took less than an hour. I love when projects are super simple and produce big results.
I think it looks SO much better and my favorite part is that I now have an original table.
