I seem to be on a table kick as exemplified by the fact I just posted a one step DIY marble side table video, and now Im posting another DIY table. Oh well! Hopefully you dont mind. This IKEA hack nightstand is a super easy project. All it takes is a lil spray paint and some contact paper, and you will have it done in no time. I did this side table four different ways, so you can take your pick. And the entire project will only set you back about $40. Thats a pretty good price for a nightstand! contact paper (marble, wood, + copper) spray paint IKEA PS 2012 side table scissors shower squeegee, ruler, or scraper (something rubber is best) Put together the table without the wire tray underneath. Spray paint the base if needed. Measure the size of contact paper you will need. You may have to use two sheets to cover the tabletop, so you will have a seam. But thats okay. Its hardly noticeable. Cover the top with contact paper using your squeegee or rubber scraper tool (Metal like shown here isnt great because it can scrape your contact paper). Hands work really well too if you dont have any smoothing tools. Your tabletop will end up looking like this. Top the base with your new pretty top! And thats it! rustic black + wood nightstand Love this DIY wood nightstand. I think it would also look great in a room with some gray chairs and a woven rug!
