Turning a Ikea coffee table into a beyblade arena
Materials: a Lack table 55x55cm
Description: First I sanded off the original color of the Ikea parts. The table has been laying around in the cellar for quite some time and there were lots of scratches in the black finish.
Then I made a wooden frame the same size as the table. The frame got glued and screwed to the table-top.
Then I painted the whole.
To make the frame a bit more resistant to the BeyBlades I added a strip of aluminium on the inside of the frame.
And just for the protocol: curious cats are NOT helpful when doing woodwork or trying to paint a table.
