Don’t we all have this IKEA Lack Coffee Table or have seen one of these plain and simple tables at one point in our lives.
Well today I will show you guys this stunning IKEA Hack which is also super budget friendly.
I love the Southwestern pattern so it had to be recreated on this table if you want to see one of my most popular Southwestern table check this post out.
Here is how my Ikea Lack table looked before.
Materials Needed for this Project
First things first I painted the entire table in this beautiful Light Mint color.
I gave the entire table two coats of the Light Mint with my favorite HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer.
Like always it gave a super clean and even finish.

I gave it a whole complete day to let it dry before I started with my stenciling.
So I made this “high end super fancy stencil out of an instruction booklet” of a blender that my husband and I got as a gift.
Behold my creation!
First I placed the stencil to see how many can fit onto the table.
Then I traced the design with a pencil very lightly onto the top.
Then with a thin paintbrush I started painting the design in the color Passionfruit.
It did take a while since I had to hand paint all the patterns.
But since I am obsessed with this pattern, it all seemed like a breeze.
When that was finally complete I went in with my Gold Sharpie to make the lines more crisp and clean.
After that I wanted to add in an extra element especially around the legs of the table.
I had these Wood Chip pieces in rectangular shapes that I sprayed with the Gold Rust-Oleum spray paint.
One on the upper part and one where the lower shelf was of the coffee table.
When the wood chips were dry I super glued the pieces on the corner of the legs.
And that was it.
The boring Ikea Lack coffee table is now fully transformed.
The light pastel shades was the perfect color for the Aztec Pattern and that is exactly what I ended up doing on this lamp.
What do you guys think?
