A colorful makeover for a work station

Micke with colorful magnetic board

Materials: MICKE work station, ELISABET fabric, teachers tape

Description: I love my MICKE work station with a magnetic board, but I wanted more color so that it could brighten up a little more.

I simply cut out the wanted amount of an IKEA-fabric i liked, and taped it to the magnetic board using teachers tape. Of course the magnetic board took no damage and works just as fine :)

  1. not bad… but i do believe that furnitures are really pricey. to save money you just have to be resourceful. revive the old furniture, redesign, and bring life to it… its fun doing things on your own..
