Wednesday workspace: Ikea table with repainted legs

I had a moment of recognition when I spotted this table for sale on Apartment Therapy. This is the same as my Ikea desk except that I have this stainless steel table top and the legs are silver-coloured (the above have been painted or sprayed.) They look pretty good red, but I am planning to replace the legs altogether, with something like the turned legs below. I want to paint them dark grey, although I need to build some kind of trestle as you can't affix them straight to the table.
So, in the end, mine actually won't look anything like this picture. But it's a nice parquet floor, all the same.

Unfinished table legs are by Osborne Wood.

I love the original Ikea table legs. You should paint yours grey and perhaps have little bird motifs scattered around.
