My IKEA hack is about transforming an IKEA low priced LACK table into a LED wall picture.
I used the following materials:
– 1 IKEA Lack side table.
– Dremel multi tools.
– 1 LED stripe 2,5 mts. with a 12v. power supply
– Opaque acrylic
– Aluminium kitchen foil
First cut a 45×45 cm square at the back of the table so you can work the interior. Take out all the filler paper of the table so it stays hollow.
At the front, make a drawing or a stencil of your choice.
With the Dremel use a cut pointer and start cutting the drawing.
Put some opaque plastic or acrylic inside, glue it on.
Put the LED light stripe inside all around the table.
In the 45×45 cm square you cut, glue some aluminium kitchen foil to make the LED light strong and bright as it provides a mirror effect.
Secure the back square at the back with screws or duct tape and just plug in the power supply and it’s ready.
Hope you like.
