First you take one Klubbo side table which looked like it had been left out in the rain...
Then you add the slatted bed base from the Fjellse bed...
and you get this gorgeous table all for $0.00!
I found the original table in a neighbours garbage and thought I would buy some wood to make a new top. Later that evening I noticed the bed slats in another neighbours garbage and realized it would be perfect for the top.
I started by measuring my wood so I have about a 3/4" overhang and I cut the wood (using my husbands mitre saw all by myself for the first time ever!). I used black satin finish Rustoleum spray paint and covered the base with three coats. While that was drying I lightly sanded and then stained the wood using Special Walnut colour stain. When dried I laid the wood on the ground and used some offcuts of the wood to join them all together on the bottom. I attached the top using wood screws to the frame. To finish off the table and to protect it, I used two coats of Polyacrylic in satin finish and left it to dry.
I love the combination of the smooth, modern metal and the rustic, aged wood.
