When my husband and I first moved into our new home there was so much to buy that there were certain areas we decided to cheap out on. While I personally believe that there is no shame in buying a $10 IKEA Lack table (I am an avid supporter of IKEA) it did leave a little to be desired. That is where this $7 roll of contact paper came in and gave our tables just the upgrade that they needed! Follow these simple steps for this affordable upgrade!
1. Paper scissors
2. Exacto knife
3. Marble contact paper
Using your paper scissors cut the contact paper to be slightly longer than the tabletop (roughly 3 inches too long per side). Slowly and carefully apply the contact paper and press firmly from beginning to end to smooth out any air bubbles. You will need two sections of contact paper to cover the width of a standard IKEA lack table. Just try your best to line up the motif so the seam won’t be visible! If you do get a few air bubbles it is no big deal! Just apply the tiniest bit of pressure to them with your exacto knife and press the air out. The contact paper will stick to the table and the air bubble will release!
