Sprucing up Ikea Furniture


My buddy had an Ikea media console that had small plastic feet. He wanted to raise it up a litte and add some interest. So this is what I came up with. They are machined from 1.5 inch aluminum, with steel threaded inserts. The recesses on the bottom are so that my friend could use the floor protectors inside, but they won't show when you look at it. They are cut from 1.5" aluminum stock and tapered.
