Description: Inspired by the stylish “C” shaped side tables from stores such as West Elm and Crate & Barrel, we turned the Ikea Vittsjo laptop table into a beautiful wood topped side table.
We removed the glass top that came with the Vittsjo, and replaced it with a dark stained wood top that sits on top of the frame. It is secured with a few screws through the original glass brackets. It is finished with several coats of furniture wax and buffed to a shine. It is the perfect side table in our cozy living room, and can be moved over the arm of the sofa to hold a beverage, or to work on a laptop.
