IKEA Lack-console table

Materials: Lack table, shower curtain, contact glue

Old and in poor condition Lack-console table. Covered with the table top and legs using a pixel pattern shower curtain.

Before: Surface worn and scratches…
Traditional painting instead I decided to glue an extra leftover shower curtain on the table :)

AFTER: My new shiny desk :)

    I’m certain the basic idea of this hack can be used on various different tables but trying to find a LACK console table may be a lost cause.

    The LACK console table is something that was discontinued a few years ago. The LACK side table range used to have many more options.
