At Remodelista, we liked this magically reimagined dining table from Los Angeles based interior designer Faye McAuliffe of You Are the River, created from a vintage walnut table sourced from Craigslist and a pair of Ikea table legs.
Here’s how to recreate your own:
Above: The table cost $50 on Craigslist—and was intact before Faye deconstructed it. After assembling a coffee table from an old top and hairpin legs, she decided to make a dining table from married parts.
Above: Faye removed the rusty screws and old table legs, sanded down the top of the table, and added a pair of nickel-plated legs.
Above: The U-base table legs are no longer available through Ikea, but alternate options are their nickel-plated Sjunne Legs (a similar shape to those shown above) for $15 each or the Lerberg Trestle Legs in white or gray for $10 each.
Above: The finished table, an agreeable mix of rustic and modern (and at a great price—the project easily comes in at under $125).
