DIY: Ikea Hack Coffee Table

It’s DIY time!! This DIY takes only a few hours, but over 2 days!

What you will need:
Ikea Lack Coffee Table (35X22X18)
4 wood boards (35X5.5)
Wood stain (I used Minwax in Red Mohogany)
Paint (I used Behr in Tropical Sea with Eggshell finish)
Drill
Screws: #6 1 1/2
Drill bit: 1/16 (1.6mm)
Foam paint brush

Step 1:
Stain the wood boards. Make sure to stain all the edges, they will be seen! However, you only need to stain one face of the board. Leave outside over night to air out.

Step 2:
Paint the coffee table. I used 3 coats to make sure the turquoise popped.

Step 3:
Lay the wood out over the top section of the table. (Do not put the table together yet.) Make a hole in the wood with the drill bit, this will make it easier for the screw to set. After you have done that screw the wood into the coffee table.

    Where did you get your lumber and wood stain?
    Does Home Depot or Lowes cut custom board sizes like this?

    Thanks!

    How many coats of stain did you do? I used the exact same stain as you, did one coat and it came out nowhere near as dark as yours :(
