I have a cute metal table I bought for a song a few years ago. I love it but the table top is too small to be really useful in my new home. For the last few months (ok longer) I've been trying to decide what to do with it and today I found my super simple solution.
Ikea has these awesome butcher block cutting boards for $20 ($10 in the USA). I bought two of them for my kitchen but I don't really ever use them anymore. The size is perfect for my table!!!

I flipped it over so that the groove is on the bottom and the edge that sticks up is pointing toward the floor. Then I stained the wood with a Minwax oak stain and glued the cutting board to the metal table top with acrylic caulking (works just like glue!). I also used linseed oil to shine it up a bit.
Easy peasy new table with an industrial edge!
Have a wonderful week!
