Make your own Rose Gold Vittsjo Desk

Make your own Rose Gold Vittsjo Desk


Posted 29th May 2017

If you're looking for a quick and effective IKEA hack, look no further!

With some simple flat-pack building skills and a can of Rust-Oleum, the plain metal and tempered glass Ikea Vittsjo can go from mass-produced cheap to bespoke and unique in no time.

Shimmering metallic tones give this desk a high-end edge, but if silver isn't your thing and you're going beyond gold, why not update your desk with Rust-Oleum's trend-setting millennial pink hue, Rose Gold Metallic.

No one will ever guess where you got this pretty little number after this quick and easy DIY...

What you need:

Rust-Oleum Rose Gold Metallic
Rust-Oleum Surface Primer
Ikea Vittsjo
Clean cloth or sponge

Directions

1 Assemble the Ikea Vittsjo laptop table leaving the glass top to one side.

2 Move the metal frame out to a well-ventilated space and place on top of a large dust sheet or some old newspapers. You may want to cover the surrounding area with additional dust sheets / newspaper to protect from spray mist.

3 Wipe the frame clean with a damp sponge or cloth and allow this to dry before proceeding to the next step.

4 Hold the can approximately 30cm away from the metal frame. Apply up to two coats of Rust-Oleum Surface Primer, leaving at least four hours in between each coat.

5 Take your can of Rust-Oleum Rose Gold Metallic and shake thoroughly. Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the frame and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results whilst spraying keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart.

6 Leave to dry in a well ventilated place for 24 hours.

7 Place the glass top on the finished frame and admire your brand-new expensive desk.
