IKEA Hackers: Reclaimed wood desk

Materials: VIKA ANNEFORS, MICKE Storage unit, VIKA LERBERG

Description: I really love some of those reclaimed wood desks but they are quite expensive, so I decided to buy these white and clean table legs (VIKA ANNEFORS, VIKA LERBERG) and start a quest for old and damaged wood pieces to create a contrasting look.

1- I found redwood beams/mantles and cleaned and dry them for about 2 days.

2- I used some tools to distress even more the reclaimed wood, particularly the edges.

3- Using glue and clamps, I putted all the pieces together and added two metal joints underneath to reinforce.

4- I applied a wood stain and sealer coat to protect wood and enhance the color.

Voila! The desk or worktable stands out with all the other Ikea elements in white. You can be creative and add marks and elements as you wish (nails, decals, paint drops, etc.)
