Lizzie's Wallpapered IKEA Lack Table

Pretty City Things

With a $20 price tag and simple design, the Lack table from IKEA is just screaming for customization. Ssshh ... listen carefully. Can you hear it? Please, dear DIY diva, take me from a cookie cutter cheap-o table to a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of furniture! Lucky for you, little table, Lizzie heard your pleas. Oh, humble IKEA Lack coffee table. How we do love to see what clever DIYers can do to enhance your simple little design. As we saw in Hacking the IKEA Lack: One Table, Ten Different Ways, there seems to be no end to the variations of customization. Here, we see how Lizzie used wallpaper to dress up her Lack.

Lizzie used spray adhesive to adhere wallpaper to the tabletop. She then applied Mod Podge and spray shellac over the wallpaper to give it a protective coating. Once dried, Lizzie finished off the table with a border of decorative nails.

This inexpensive upgrade to a cheap table gives it a more lush appearance. Check out the full post on Lizzie's blog — Pretty City Things: IKEA Goes Glam.
