Ikea Side Table Makeover

I hope you guys all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was super productive as I made a lot of progress in our bedroom design.  It is really coming along, although, I do still need to paint the walls, which is hanging over my head because our bedroom furniture is SO heavy.  Besides that there have been many things on my to-do list that I've been checking off one by one and this weekend it happened to be our nightstands that got a little love.  I've been using the IKEA Lack tables as our nightstands for a while now.  I actually hated how they looked but I hadn't found a better solution.  So when I was out and about on Saturday, I popped into a fabric store and hit the jackpot.  I scored 4 yards of Windsor Smith's Riad Fabic in Clove, which I knew would be perfect to dress up those Lack tables.

So I took this table

and I detached the legs.  Then I cut fabric to fit (one piece for the top and four pieces for the legs).  Next, I used my staple gun to attach the fabric to the 5 pieces and lastly reassembled the table.



It was so easy and really makes a huge difference in the room!  What do you think?

Oh and Happy Valentine's Day!
