Granas gone rustic

Materials: Ikea granas table, applaro patio, glue gun, skill saw

Description: I went to ikea as-is to find a computer chair and ended up stumbling upon 2 pieces from a patio chair, being only $1.90cad.

I have an old Granas table in my living room, and the gel in between the glass and the metal was starting to fade. I decided it was time to spice things up a bit.


I took the glass off the table, and then proceeded to measure it out to fit the coffee table. Surprisingly it was the perfect width, but the ends were a bit too long, so a skill saw was used.

Bit of sanding, and a hot glue gun allowed for this to be the finished product.
