The Only Kitchen Table You Will Ever Want or Need

The Only Kitchen Table You Will Ever Want or Need

Dear readers, I bring to you today the only kitchen table you will ever want or need.

Okay I don’t REALLY know that.  But I bet a lot of you could really use something like the Docksta.

IKEA’s Docksta table, for $199:

Bright, beautiful, retro-modern…and CHEAP!

But this is where it gets fun.  You can literally choose just about any chair and pair it with the Docksta, and it looks fabulous.  Perky green chairs.  Love!

White, modern.  Very scandinavian and serious.

Wood looks gorgeous with the Docksta.

And even close-to-my-heart Chinoiserie looks stunning next to the Docksta’s clean lines.

And look!  Surrounded by traditional elements (not to mention a bright pink banquet), the Docksta holds its own..and adds a real pop.

This is some serious high-end design going on with the Docksta taking center stage…

Okay, and who said the Docksta has to stay WHITE?  This design genius painted her Docksta with black chalkboard paint. I die!

Now, I will tell you – the Docksta is small so measure please before you pull the trigger!  It comfortably fits 4 chairs!  But when it fits…oh it’s decorating magic.

    Any suggestions on to hip white paint for the Docksta table? I accidentally scratched mine.

      Hi – I suggest either using a spray paint like Rustoleum (they have a nice, bright white) or grab a bunch of paint chips from the hardware store and try to see which white would be the closest match. Another thought – have you reached out to IKEA customer service? Sometimes companies have paint they can send you to help with scratches. Best of luck!

    can you replace the top with a larger one to seat six?

      Hi Jon, yes I believe you can! If possible to actually visit IKEA, I might recommend it, so you can see how its built and see if you can fasten the table top appropriately.

      Hi – You could definitely put a larger top on the table, but I would worry about it tipping over if someone leans on it. Make sure it’s fastened to the table – I recommend having a professional do it!!
