    Thanks for the inspiration. I live next to a lake and was wondering how to make something similar. Going on a driftwood hunt tomorrow!

    I think it’s a great idea….and it still qualifies as a hack.

    Seriously? This is barely a hack. Impress us people!

    What’s next? “I bought a lamp from someplace other than Ikea, placed it on a Ikea end table – behold my awesome hack!”
