My IKEA hack is about transforming an IKEA low priced LACK table into a LED wall picture.

LACK side table

LACK hacked into 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
– Glue
– Stencil
– 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.

use a dremel to cut out the image

add LED lights

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.
