Side TablesFlanking the couch in the designer room are two ivory-lacquered side tables with a unique cross-base detail. The pair costs almost $3,000. Jamie is able to replicate the tables for $100. He starts by purchasing pre-primed lumber from a home store. A router is used on two boards to create the seamless look on the X-shaped legs. Once the table is assembled, high-gloss paint is applied to achieve the polished look of lacquer.
Tip: It is only about 10 cents more per linear foot to buy lumber that already has a coat of primer on it. Buying pre-primed wood can save a lot of time and mess.
