Kitchen Island IKEA Hack
We are adding the idea to your Ideas.

From the blogger: "This project is perfect if you have a small kitchen or just don't have enough counter or cupboard space. All you need are 2 Ikea LACK tables, some paint and a few basic tools and you can have a brand new kitchen island! If you'd like to make this project even easier, you can use a 3rd Ikea LACK tabletop as the bottom shelf of the island instead of building one yourself. I used scrap wood to build the bottom shelf pictured."
Note from the blogger: "I originally placed casters on the feet, but this made it too tall compared to my counters. Also (not sure if this was due to the water damage these tables had or not) one of the casters ripped off, so might not be the best idea."

Primary TechniqueFurniture Projects
- 2 or 3 Ikea LACK tables
- Hardware (Optional)
- Spray Paint OR Primer and Paint
- Liquid Nails
- Scrap Lumber (Optional)
DIY Project Instructions
Place glue on feet of one LACK table and stack on the other table. Wipe excess glue and allow to dry.
Spray paint if you'd like to change the color (I used Rustoleum Metallic in Flat Soft Iron) or prime, then paint.
Add EZFauxDecor to the top. This product is something between contact paper and linoleum. It is heavy duty and won't tear. It will stand up to heavy use, water, etc. You apply it the same way you do contact paper.
Add decorative hardware.
Load it up with kitchen items and enjoy your extra counter space!
