Friday Find

IKEA has some new tables and they are simple & inexpensive & really good looking, the perfect IKEA mix :)

The new line mixes metal and glass. Here is their "coffee table":

I like that they're nesting tables, but it looks a little small for most spaces. This is one of their "tv units": 

Looks like a great coffee table to me! The "tv unit" above is only $39 - crazy! We're having a party next week and my living room is sans coffee table, I may pick one up. If I do, I'll let you know about the quality!

Jenny from Little Green Notebook already posted a hack by VT Interiors with this new IKEA series, check it out!

You can see the new line HERE.

    I have lots of plans for these pieces as well.  After seeing Jenny's post and the prices I was totally inspired!

  2. I was just at Ikea yesterday and saw these.  They were pretty nice.  Especially if a hack like on Jenny's blog is done!  Love it.  I wish they had end tables though.  I am on the hunt for some just like this to be painted.  Love the round coffee table too.

  3. Ikea is amazing.   We bought Bonde cabinets in 2002 (9) that we have used over and over again.  Seven are now in our Master Closet housing "all" our clothes.  No need for chests and dressers.  We also had a wall of mirrored tall narrow cabinets that we left when we sold our Norfolk condo.  They spanned an entire wall in the bedroom and master bath....made the sale!!!
    Looking forward to see what wonders you do

  4. I like that tv unit as a coffee table too :) sadly we have a 1year old, I've been on the hunt for the perfect ottoman :)

  5. I love that new line! It's so sleek and modern - I have definitely been considering picking up some of those shelving units and painting them like Jenny did - it would look perfect in my living room!

  6. I think those tables look great on its own but man, that gold color is so striking...i can't stop loving that room!

    Just a heads up- I went to IKEA yesterday and took a look at the new line.  The furniture seems to be really sturdy and good quality.   However, I saw the "tv unit" and I think it would be too low (and possibly too small) for a coffee table.  I didn't see all the pieces so maybe there is something else that would work?? 

  8. The shelves were perfect and I am now positive that I will be doing a DIY makeover!

  9. Simply brilliant!

  10. Thanks for the heads-up!  My husband make custom wood furniture and has been looking for a good welder to make a metal base for a coffee table and sofa table.  I just sent him this link... perhaps worth a try adding a wood top?
