I bought a set of nesting side tables at Ikea about 7 years ago. It was a set of 3, but we haven’t used them together in a very long time. Ikea doesn’t even sell this same exact table anymore. Well, at least, now the look alike only comes with 2 nesting tables. Anyhow, my girl was in need of a night stand so I hacked the largest of the three nesting tables for her room.
It was pretty simple. I took it apart, spray painted the metal base gold (Rustoleum metallic gold), covered the table top with a throw rug I picked up at TJ Maxx for $16.99, put it back together, and called it done.
The fabric covered boxes (HomeGoods) fit perfectly underneath and are so great for added storage.
I literally just glued the brass pulls (Home Depot) to the fronts. Liquid Fusion glue is serious – works on everything – not kidding!
I love the texture, pattern, and color the rug adds to the table top.
