We’re currently in the process of furnishing Derek’s new casa, and I’ve found so many pieces over the last month that I have to get. Obviously they can’t all come home with me (apparently money really doesn’t grow on trees), so I’ve decided to “DIY” some of them. I recently turned 2 Ikea “Lack” side tables into ottomans/coffee tables.. Here’s how my dad and I did it!
2 Ikea Lack side tables
2 pieces of 32 inch x 54 inch fabric of your choice
super glue or spray adhesive
upholstery scissors (or other sharp, heavy duty scissors)
4. Using a staple gun, insert 3 to 4 staples on each side of the table. Fold the corners of your table to your liking (I went with a gift-wrap type corner). Hammer in the staples to make sure there are none poking out.
6. Use your new pieces as a coffee table or bench for the foot of your bed!
