Remember those horrible holiday sweaters that everyone seemed to wear in the 90's? The ones with the jingling bells, 3D snowmen and light-up buttons? Well apparently (and unbeknownst to me until quite recently), they're now a "thing."
IKEA's Lack table is a DIYer's perfect canvas for unbridled creativity. At just $10, it's easy to justify the expense. If the project doesn't work out, it's a minimal investment.

A few years back, we mentioned our slight obsession for real dishware. We've never been big on the disposable stuff (even for parties, outdoors or not) and because of it, we have 160 white plates we picked up on Craigslist for a ridiculously low price.
