We launched the IKEAHackers Giveaway a week ago and so far, it’s been fun reading all your comments. Keep them coming to win gift certificates from my 5 amazing sponsors. CoverCouch, O’verlays, Panyl, Prettypegs and Semihandmade. They are “IKEA-hack companies” that supply products that fit the IKEA system. Think of them as supplier of hacking shortcuts.

Got a RAST chest of drawers? Let Panyl and O’verlays totally transform it for you. And if you thought CAPITA legs were your only option, despair no more, there’s Prettypegs.

4 Prettypegs OTTO 700 table legs
4 2.0cm Greek Key O’verlays strips
1 MDF board
1 PANYL sheet Carrera Marble (124cm x 64cm)
We purchased a 47 1/4″ x 23 5/8″ IKEA Klimpen table top in black finish, and attached it to a set of Prettypegs Otto 700 table legs
We purchased a 2 ft x 4 ft MDF board at Home Depot and had it cut down on-site to match the dimensions of the Klimpen top (120cm x 60cm).
We wrapped the MDF board in Carrera Marble PANYL.
We glued the wrapped MDF board to the Klimpen table top with construction adhesive.
We spray painted the O’verlays Greek Keys with high-gloss black paint, and glued them to the sides of the IKEA Klimpen table top.
