Klubbo + Fjellse Slats = Vintage Industrial Table

Materials: Klubbo side table, Fjellse bed slats, stain, polyacrylic, screws, spray paint

Description: I found a Klubbo side table in the garbage and the same evening I stumbled across the wooden bed slats from a Fjellse.

I started by measuring my wood so I have about a 3/4″ overhang and I cut the wood (using my husbands mitre saw all by myself for the first time ever!). I used black satin finish Rustoleum spray paint and covered the base with three coats.

While that was drying I lightly sanded and then stained the wood using Special Walnut colour stain. When dried I laid the wood on the ground and used some offcuts of the wood to join them all together on the bottom. I attached the top using wood screws to the frame. To finish off the table and to protect it, I used two coats of Polyacrylic in satin finish and left it to dry.

    Perhaps the exact ‘overhang’ is less important than measuring all pieces so they are the same size? Please don’t be so pedantic when someone is proud to show and share their good work.

    Intersting choice of words… “I started by measuring my wood so I have about a 3/4″ overhang”
