A brass or gold etageres is a smidge traditional for my taste, but this VITTSJO ikea hack by Ana Antunes got me thinking.

The whole VITTSJO family has sharp, clean lines that fit right into a modern home. The products are functional and streamlined, but the plastic finish tends to look cheap. Lucky for us, that's a snap to change!

(Unfortulately, this one's a mental DIY because I have no current vacancy for a coffee table or desk.)

Here are two VITTSJO hacks I'm dying to try. Anyone need a desk/console or coffee table? I'm begging to build you furniture, people.
