Intro: Recycling IKEA INGO Into Bar Standing Table in 3 Simple Steps

We had a very old INGO table from IKEA. It was in a very dirty garage and we used it as a workbench.

We decided to transform it to a standing table for our kitchen.

The process is very simple, and the result is awesome!

Step 1: Cut the Table to Fit Your Space

First of all, you have to cut the table top.

Standing tables are not much deep.

Remember to sand the table once finished cutting, it is very important!

Step 2: Place Table Stands

Place a lot of solid table stands.

I advice you to do not economize on that.

The stands quality is critical for a table without legs :)

Step 3: Finish the Wood

Put some paint primer on the wood, that makes the difference!

    At first I was thing to myself "why didn't they just use a regular piece of wood?" Then I realized that you were recycling something that was no longer desired in it's current form. Now it makes more sense. What did you do with the rest of the scraps?

    Thank you for your comment. I changed the title to be clearer :)

    I used legs to make a serigraphy frame.

    Smaller parts are gone into fireplace :)

    Gorgeous modern shelf, and thanks to your handiwork looks very sturdy! I love how simple you made the process seem!
