5 Cool Ikea LACK Hacks


Oh the LACK sidetable.  I have two – how about you?  And mine are in need of some real TLC soon or they’ll be headed for the curbside.  Luckily I ran across this fun little Ikea washi-tape hack on Pinterest today which got me thinking and searching for more inspiration.  I love the idea of turning a little white table into a rainbow in about 10 minutes, don’t you?  Such a fun DIY.  Check out the others in the slideshow below.
