Saw this DIY coffee table over at For Me, For You and had to steal the idea. I've already ordered up the hairpin legs and will be planning a trip to Ikea for the top as soon as they arrive. I can't wait to get rid of the old mid-century table we have now. I've been overwhelmed by the feeling lately that my place could use some freshening up and this table will be the perfect first step!ps. I've done a few DIY projects that I still have to take the after pics of and will be posting those soon!
*Just a little side note: I went to Ikea to pick up this top for my new coffee table and learned it was in fact butcher block, I don't know how I missed it (maybe because it was referred to as solid oak in the original blog post), all I do know is I had my first panic attack. It wasn't just the fact that I drove all the way to Ikea in 90 plus degree weather only to find what I have been dreaming of for the past week doesn't exist, this random woman also stopped in her tracks while I was freaking out (quietly in my head), turned around and said "can I give you my card, I'm sensing something, I'm a physic." All I could do was stare at her...and proceed to float through the nest half of Ikea like a zombie. I will be looking for a nice piece of selvedge wood for the top now, thanks to my little sista and my good friend who thank god picked up their phones and talked me through it! Did I say a little side note, sorry I meant a crazy long rant.*
