The $8 Room Makeover Secret
When is a side table not (only) a side table? These DIY bloggers show us three innovative uses for Ikea's amazing, affordable and versatile "Lack" design in an excerpt from Young House Love.

One Table as a Shelf
Use the tabletop as the backdrop for a series of shallow floating shelves made from the legs (we used one Lack table in the black-brown finish). We held each leg in place and screwed them in from the back of the tabletop. Try drilling pilot holes to make this process easier, and be sure to check that each shelf is level as you go. Use the existing holes on the back to hang your new shelf over a couple of screws drilled into studs or heavy-duty anchors in the wall. (One $8 table and screws = less than $10.)
