If you're looking for an inexpensive bed that has clean, sleek lines to it, the first place many turn is IKEA. Christina Libertini did the same as the second hand bed they had picked up kept falling apart on her 4 year old son. After things were assembled, a little personalization was in order — enter duct tape!

Duct tape has always been ridiculously versatile, but with all the new colors that are available, it's become even more so on the craft front. Christina slightly overlapped each color and finished off the edges in black Gorilla tape. The end result gives a serious bang for the buck with a fabulous burst of color!

We love this idea for use over anything veneered as it can often be difficult to paint. This is a quick and simple way to dress up any piece of furniture and can be changed out time and time again.
