Hi friends, hope you had a lovely weekend. I am back with another Ikea Hack. This one is so simple it'll leave you saying "duh!" I took the $40 Vittsjo laptop desk and made it look much, much more expensive than that. This is seriously so simple I don't even have a tutorial for you. I went Home Depot and had a piece of wood cut to 39 1/2" x 14 1/4". Don't use plywood unless you like the look of the stacked edges. I used this 18" wide pine board. I stained the board with Minwax Polyshades in Mission Oak. Set the board on top and voila! Told you it was easy! If you are using this piece of furniture a lot, I would advise gluing the top to the base. And, for the vanity I spray painted the base white for a slightly more feminine look.
Here is the finished Vittsjo hack in my bedroom as a vanity.
And here is the same piece in our entry as an entry way table.
We painted our front door this weekend! The color is Behr Undine. I planed for it to be a little earthier, but I really love the way it turned out, especially next to the colors of the entry way.
