Τwo Ikea Lack Tables Become One

 Hello!! I hope you are enjoying the last month of summer! A few days ago i was a guest at A Peek Into My Paradise where i shared a makeover of 2 Ikea Lack tables. Take a look at what i did!
As some of you might know we have a 9 month boy. He has began moving all over the house and we are adjusting everything for his safety! Locking the cupboards and drawers, adding safety cushions and so on and so on…

 One of the things we had to do was find a way so that the man of the house did not flip over the small Ikea Lack tables we have in our living room. He tries to get up in every chance he gets! These tables are so lightweight and he could easily get hurt.

 We have two of the small ones, 21 5/8″ x 21 5/8″.  Instead of buying another table and leaving these two aside, i decided to join them and make a new one. So, i secured them so there is no risk of the baby pulling them apart or that the tables get separated.
 I did not put any vases or other decorations on them, just added a few rows of black satin ribbon. I used push pins for securing the ribbon in place. A more fancy color would be better i believe, but we are trying not to have many temptations around here. Fucshia ribbon or colorful washi tape would not have been a wise choice!

 

 The baby did not pay much attention to the tables! The black on black was not intriguing for him! He just tasted the ribbon and went on exploring the world!
 Hope you liked my idea!

IKEA Lampan Lamp Hack

 It is finally over!!!!! That one took a lot of time! But it was worth it! Our new table lamp is great! I have been wanting to make a new one, but i was not happy with a few ideas i came up with. A visit to IKEA was the solution. I got the LAMPAN Lamp, in white. I was going for the black one, but our local store was out of it. I settled for the white and i am really glad i did.

 I used crushed glass, which i glued with white glue, to decorate the lamp hat. I glued the glass one next to the other on top. As i was going i added less and less glass.
 And after a few hours (and days!!!) it was finally finished!
