Lack Table Face Lift

Materials: 2 Lack side tables, tools to assemble table, PL Premium Adhesive

Description: You fully make 1 of the tables as directed and then take the top from the other table and glue them to the bottom of the fully assembled table using PL Premium construction adhesive and voila new much more attractive expensive looking tables! I bunched mine together as a slim coffee table and the ottomans I already had on hand happened to fit in perfectly as a happy accident.

Just be careful with the glue and defiantly wipe up any extra, I have spots I didn’t clean so well and it has yellowed over time.

    Where are these ottomans from?

    I found these:
    OSP Designs Tufted Accent Cube – MET376 on

    but the color seems off. They seem to be the right size too. Am I right?

    Hi there, love this hack and love the blue padded stools you’ve got, where did you get them from if you don’t mind me asking? :-)

    Nice. It can save some space on your living room. It’s like table and a chair in one. I love it!

    It looks nice, bravo. I would put four chair pads at each corner to avoid the (nice) floor scratching.

    It looks like you actually need 4 tables.
