What is an IKEA Hack?

Are you familiar with the term, “IKEA Hack?” If not, an IKEA Hack is when you change or transform a basic piece of Ikea furniture (or anything IKEA really) into something more high end or give it an on trend look. It is upgrading, customizing and revamping the basic Ikea piece into something new. 

In today’s project we used a white IKEA Lack coffee table. This has a very basic shape that can be easily upgraded with a new finish. Remember the Faux Burl Wood table we made using this same table?!

What type of concrete to use

We used Henry’s Feather Finish for this project. It is easy to mix and easy to use. This product is actually a underlayment patch and skimcoat. It dries in about 15 minutes.

How to make an IKEA Hack Concrete Coffee Table

This project is as simple as assembling the coffee table. We actually did not use the bottom shelf of the coffee table as you can see in the photos.

Then you skim coat a few coats of concrete, then sand/buff. You will want to add a few coats of concrete sealant. Especially if you plan on using this table poputside.
