1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Spiffed up IKEA table on: March 04, 2005 11:10:13 AM
This is my first post.  Partly because I'm new, partly because I'm a lurker, and partly because I'm not very creative.

Either way, I just recently moved into an apartment with my boyfriend and, because we aren't exactly swimming in money and also because my brother works there, we got a lot of our new furniture from IKEA.  Our coffee table was the cheapest one we could find:  a silver-y looking frame with a plain glass top.  I don't have a before picture, but it was pretty bland and you could not only see the framework under the glass, but you could also see every single smudge.

I got SO sick of it SO fast, so I went to Barnes & Noble and I got a large world map, which I then cut down to size and pinned under the glass of the table.  Very simple!

I also got some Crayola window markers from WalMart so my boyfriend and I could write messages on the table, like where we want to travel.  We also play the "Find These Places On The Map" game.

This is the framework that was under the glass that I got sick of looking at.

And here are some of the 'finished' table:

Now I just have to find something to do with our desk, which has the same issue.
