Golden Legs

I loved the shape of these Ikea desk/table legs, but didn’t quite like the cheapish aluminium color. Since I’m a fan of using gold leaf I decided to gild the legs with it. Then I added a pine wood top that was first covered with glossy wood varnish, then gilded at the edges to optically merge it with the legs. I think the outcome is quite stylish.
