Description of Max

A table with a round, blue lacquered top of 140.0 cm in diameter, with a red lacquered base. Based on my favorite table, the Hay Two-Color round table.

How I made this project

I ordered a round piece of MDF with lacquer foil from . I sanded it lightly, cleaned and degreased it, and then painted it with blue high-gloss lacquer. I applied a small layer of Alabastine MDF filler over the edges of the MDF, which I also sanded and degreased, and then varnished. There are a total of three layers of varnish on the top, I sanded lightly between the layers.

The varnish carrier film is very easy to varnish, but because the table has such a large surface and it The weather was very warm last week, and it was not possible to get the paint to a mirror-smooth finish with a roller. After the third coat it looks pretty good, but next time I would consider spraying or brushing the table. The base is a square IKEA Melltorp base, which I colored red with a can of spray paint.

Dimensions of my DIY project

The table is 140.0 cm in diameter, the base is 75.0 cm by 75.0 cm. The table is 75.0 cm high.
