well, we know that ikea furniture is not made to last forever but before you trash it, get a little crafty and you may just give it a new lease of life.
chris salvaged his ikea lack coffee table - gave it new legs and a new look. first, he dismantled the table and his wife did a pretty decoupage for the top. then he cut pipe legs and mounted them to the bottom of the table to form the pipe base.
the end result is a totally new table, which looks anything but ikea. seems wobble-proof too.
just a thought - how about putting in the original lower shelf (after decoupage too) for additional storage? and perhaps finding a way to paint or wrap the pipes to match the table? the steel feels a tad cold to me.
