Best Ikea Hack: The Strind Side Table As A Marble Brass Marvel

March 29, 2016 // DIY

First off, the word hack makes us want to throw up a bit in our mouths, but in the interest of search engines and such, we are using it.

Now we’ve made that known – let’s talk about the Strind side table. It’s the perfect size as a nightstand, or next to the sofa in the living room. In our case, we got it as a TV unit. It’s hard to find small corner units for TVs – has anyone else noticed that? So, round is a good way to go.

We made this project for a Snapchat story (@nycfiona if you want to keep up) and are using the snaps from that for this gallery which is why they look like, uh, Snapchat pics. Just FYI.

Anyway, here’s WHAT YOU’LL NEED for this DIY:

1 .Strind Side Table
2. Marble Contact Paper – at least 20” wide
3. Brass Spray Paint – we used Krylon Metallic Brass
4. Painter’s tape

WHAT TO DO:

1. Assemble the table – but leave out the rubber glass pads and the glass

2. Wrap painter’s tape around the outer rubber part of the wheels

3. Take the table outside

4. Spray three thin coats of paint – waiting 15 minutes between each coat

5. Allow to dry fully for two hours

6. While the paint is drying, grab your marble contact paper

7. Place one of the glass shelves over the back

8. Trace a line around it in pencil

9. Cut out the circle

10. Peeling the back off ONE INCH at a time, stick the film over the glass panel

11. Smooth out any bubbles as you peel the backing off – do not wait till the end, it will be a disaster

12. Repeat on the second shelf.

13. Retrieve your (dry) table from outside

14. Insert the glass pads into the holes

15. Place the marble-glass panes on the table

16. That’s it, yo
