I love the blank slate presented by Ikea’s Lack table — one simple design, endless possibilities. And I particularly love this creative hack from blogger Naomi Stein of Design Manifest, which reminded me of my childhood love for origami.

That’s right — origami. Naomi took paper — specifically, some grasscloth wallpaper left over from another project — and used it to cover her Lack table and completely change its look. She wasn’t super happy with the way the corner seams turned out, so she took smaller pieces of grasscloth and made folded pieces to cover the corners. For a finishing touch, she painted everything a pale pink.
