The basic ingredients for this hack:
- An IKEA VIKA BYSKE tabletop
- Set of VIKA LERBERG trestle legs
- White Paint
- Polycrylic Coating
- Gold Spray Paint
First, you start with the table top. Coat it with a layer of primer, followed by 3 coats of paint, and then 2 coats of polycrylic for a smooth finish. We'd recommend wiping down and evening out the paint/coats between applications.
As for the legs, spray paint them with 2-3 coats of metallic gold paint for that extra punch of class at a fraction of the cost.here and here.
