Today’s projects are all for your living room. And the first one is a TV unit made out of a bed base from the Malm series. In this case they made use of an old bed they didn’t have use for anymore. Good planning and making use of Google Sketch-Up got them what you can see above. It’s still lacking the last finishing touches but as you can see the result looks fabulous.

For this project you are going to need more advanced skills even if you already have the design plans for it. But if you have a spare bed around that you no longer use this article might give enough ideas to transform it into something amazing.

After a more advanced DIY project a more simple one. This one is all about proper stacking. You don’t really need too many skills for this one. A kitchen countertop on offer on top of castor wheels that was on offer works as the base. The rest are a couple of three shelves Besta units adapted and four two shelves Besta ones. They have some of them the shelves removed to create more space and the rest is all about placing them in pleasing manner over the movable base.

And the final result looks much more expensive than it actually is. Jump to the article to read more and get all the instructions.

IKEA furniture is cheap but is usually very basic and very, very plain. If that simplicity is not something you enjoy you can still have something with a vintage look with just a little bit of extra work.

This DIY project transforms a modern and simple Lack coffee table into a beautiful vintage  one. You don’t really need to have too many skills. The only things needed are: paint in different colours, wood stain and sanding paper. And sanding, painting and staining are all the tasks required to finish this simple project.

And in our final project for today a Lack TV bench transforms into a very stylish and modern coffee table that as you can see in the photo makes a terrific bed for dogs too.

Two Lack TV benches have been used and they are joined together using some Lillangen leg frames. Some cutting, drilling and a couple of hinges later you get a very modern, unique and easy to clean coffee table that no-one else has in its house. Maybe just one more person.

It’s a very easy project, as the previous two ones, and you really don’t need to know much more than using a drill and some basic DIY skills. Jump to the article to read more and get all the instructions.
