From Basic to Mid-Century Modern

Materials: Jokkmokk Table, wood stain, hairpin legs

Description: I transformed a basic Jokkmokk table by removing the legs and trim, sanding and re-staining the tabletop, and adding sleek, mid-century modern style legs.

The project took less than an hour to complete and the results are huge! A basic table was transformed from a near Goodwill donation to a piece I will treasure for years to come.

    Love it, this is a great idea! I just bought a Jokkmokk table off craigslist and would like to do something similar. May I ask what type of stain you used? I really like the result. Looks very natural and non-obtrusive. Thanks a lot!
