IKEA HACK: GOLD COFFEE TABLE

Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite DIY projects- the beloved IKEA gold coffee table! It is honestly one of my favorite additions to any living room. The gold and marble details scream CHIC, while still having an affordable price point.

Before I get started, I can't take the credit for this project. My good friend Britta just moved to Montana, and the first thing she did to personalize her new home was getting her DIYing on. Her beau and her spent a weekend transforming their IKEA coffee table. She agreed to share her step-by-step guide on how to recreate this beauty for your own home!


 WHAT YOU WILL NEED:





INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Sand down the entire white coffee table and wipe down with a damp microfiber cloth. Let dry.
2. Apply a spray primer made for metal. 
3. Apply several THIN coats of gold spray paint. Allowing 4 hours between coats. 
*Note if there are any runs or bubbles, don't panic! With a fine grit sand paper, sand them out and wipe clean and apply one final coat
4. Apply two coats of sealant to lock in the gold paint (Krylon Clear Glaze).
5. Once paint is completely dry, apply paper over the bottom glass surface of the table and cut excess off with a dull putty knife. 
5. Decorate your new table with my favorite coffee table essentials!
