If you've been following me at all you will know I'm not a DIYer, but you will be so proud of Jamie and I for doing our own little Ikea Hack job on the Vika Amon table for our desks at the new office. We chose this desk because of the beautiful glossy white top and the GREAT price (only $55 for the table + legs!!)
Here is what the desk and legs normally looks like (we bought the white legs).
These metal legs didn't need any prep besides making sure they were clean. We took the legs outside to the parking lot and laid down the Ikea box from the table top. Then in quick downward sprays we sprayed the legs. Try to spray as continuously and in the downward motion as much as possible to avoid dripping from spraying in one place too long.
Here is the leg finished and drying.
And after we let them dry for a couple of hours we came back to the office and assembled the desk. Here is our finished product!
Isn't that SO much better than the original desk? I LOVE this metallic paint. The legs really look like brass and the ordinary screws look like nice brass bolts. It really classed up the desk.
And you can see our new office in the background - isn't it pretty?! We are so excited to be at this new office space and even more excited at how I can better serve my clients with the huge design library and great resources.
Also notice that this photo is an Instragram photo! Yes, I finally left the dark ages and got my first iPhone! I only have one photo posted but I would love some followers - I'll be posting great photos of our projects, and great furniture finds. My Instagram name is MARIANNEBROWN12.
Hope you enjoyed my little DIY. (Now I'm going to let my bruised spraying finger rest - spray painting is hard work!)
