Fact: decorating a house can be very, very expensive. We all want to find practical, durable, and good-looking furniture. Because it’s not always easy to find, most people turn to the Swedish brand IKEA for budget-friendly furniture. Although some items are perfect the way they are, others sometimes need a little something to get that wow factor.
A perfect example is the LACK side table, sold between $9,99 and 15,99, depending on the colour and the finish (high gloss or not). Here below are 10 easy, fast and inexpensive ways to transform this ordinary table into a piece of furniture that will keep your guests talking.
1. For the vintage lovers
Simply add a wooden surface (that can be done using paint!), a tablet and wheels, and you won’t even recognize your table!
