Ceramic tiles to the rescue

JoBeth from Singapore has an old Ikea table (name long forgotten) that little sis destroyed and Dad saved. All you need to re-create this tiled table top, which I think will look great on a lack coffee table, are a hammer, ceramic tiles in different colours, tile adhesive, grout, a sponge and an eye for colour coordination.


See JoBeth’s tiled table top instructions.

    What a great idea!! And the best part is that this could be applied to pretty much ANY IKEA table, as we all know how plain they are (i.e. LACK series; LACK of quality, LACK of design, LACK of detail, as my friend and I always say haha). You could even fancy up one of those LACK shelves this way I bet. Any idea of how the grout would hold up on the type of material on one of the above mentioned items?
