Admit it, we all love the cheap furniture from IKEA! And how nice is it if you can give it your own twist? I think it is fantastic to turn a boring piece of furniture into a beautiful showpiece! What do you think of the famous IKEA LACK table, for example? This table is for sale for only 6.99 euros and you can do a lot of creative things with it. The mother from the following article thought the same. She walked through the IKEA and looked for a nice gift for her son and then came up with the great idea of creating something herself. A personal gift often has more meaning than a standard gift. She wanted to make something that he could really use. When she saw this table, the idea came to her to make a chalk and craft table.
Let’s start! Believe me, it’s really not that hard. And it is also super cheap, you can make this gift for less than twenty dollar. What do you need for this project?
– LACK table by IKEA (6.99)
– SOCKER jar from IKEA (0.99)
– A bucket of chalk paint
– A paint roller
– A pencil
– Different colored pieces of chalk
– A roll of paint tape
– A handsaw
Step 1. Make a circle
Once you have collected all materials you can start with step 1. Measure with a ruler where the center of the table is. Place the iron “SOCKER” pot in the middle of the table, and draw a circle around it with a pencil. Continue to the next page for step 2.
