The previous tenants left us their dining table. The Ikea Ingo table wasn't quite what Chris and I wanted for the kitchen, but we decided it would be perfect as a coffee table. Inspired by Will Means' nightstand and several octopus tables, we set out to give the Ingo table new life.
We sanded it and cut down the legs.
Chris put together a stencil image in photoshop and we printed it off and laid it out on the table.
We cut the stencil out of acetate and painted around the edges.
Then we painted the whole thing a sexy black.
Finally we peeled off the stencil and gave it a shiny coat of polyurethane.
The finished kraken table!
