IKEA end table – You can easily build a shadow box IKEA end table from a small window, and some other wood supplies. If you can attach two pieces of wood together, you can build these simple and decorative projects. You can find almost everything you need for this project at your local home store. And assistants will cut wood strips for you if you ask. Fill your shadow box with memorabilia, stones and shells or images to create a one of a kind end table for your home.
Measure the perimeter of the window to get the dimensions of each of the four 2 inch wood. Determine how high you want your IKEA end table. Standard height is 26 inches, but you should measure the height of your furniture you plan to connect with it. And your personal preferences.
Decorative IKEA end table legs are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Just remember your shadow box will add to the height of 3 to 4 inches. Also add the thickness of your windows, plus 2 inches in the box frame. And then subtract that number from the total height of your table to get the length of the table leg to buy. Exit the window, wood strips and table legs with either priming and painting or staining, whichever you prefer. If you are recycling an old window, sand it before you refinish it to match the bones and wood.
