Jeraldine pretties up the stoic Ingo coffee table and adds space to it too.
She says, “I bought a simple wood table for my living room as I love wood. However, I decided to smart it up a bit. So I painted it in white. I added a pattern with a stencil and grey painting. Then I realised I needed a shelf under it to store some magazines for example. As I had dismounted an old Ivar furniture, I took one of the plank, sewed it to size, painted it. I marked the height at which I wanted the plank and drilled four holes in each leg. I pushed in them the small pieces of steel usually used to make Ivar planks stand and installed the extra shelf under my table.”
