DIY Donut Bar Stand from IKEA Lack table

I was graduating from business school in June and wanted to do something different for my graduation party. I love donuts and I wanted to make a display for them and found a few ideas on Pinterest. I found an old LACK table at home that was a little bit scratched and no longer in use so I decided to paint it and turn it into a donut bar stand.

I had a tester paint from the year before which worked out great. Small metallic gold triangles in the corners of the table made it look a little more glam.

Measure where the rods should go

I had some paper straws left from a birthday. They was perfect for the project to be used as rods for the donuts to hang from.

Measure where the rods should go

I measured the table so that all the holes were evenly spread out


I cut one straw and put it into another for extra strength to hold up the donuts.

My husband helped me put the straws into the holes.

The stand looked like this when the straws were in. The inflatable donut is a can holder for a hot tub or pool. I bought it in Glasgow. (Similar here)

Paper doilies

I found these paper doilies at a local shop, perfect size for donuts.
