You’ll never Lack for style with this $7.99 table

by -

Like us, our frugal friends over at the design blog Bromeliad must have gotten the Ikea flyer last week detailing a few of the items that cost less this year at the Swedish retailer than last. Bargains include the Malm six-drawer chest ($149 last year; $129 this year), the oddly-named-for-a-sleep-surface Sultan Fidjetun queen-size memory mattress ($349 last year; $249 this year) and the ubiquitous Lack table, pictured, ($15 last year; $7.99 now.) The table comes in eight colors, and if you don’t look too closely at the ingredient panel, it’s pretty swell as is (especially in pairs). But Bromeliad rounds up a host of stylish ways to pimp your Lack: veneer it, mirror it or cover it in mosaic tile, among others. And while you’re nosing around this wonderful blog (sort of a mom-and-pop version of Apartment Therapy, check out another genius post: a DIY, very faux, zebra skin rug made with vinyl fabric and Sharpie. Fun.
