IKEA hacks with the LACK table

Almost everyone has one of the popular tables from the IKEA LACK series at home. But the simple furniture is not really an eye-catcher. We'll show you how to transform the LACK tables into creative individual pieces for your children's room.

Make your own XXL board games

Let the dice roll!

With the board games, the IKEA LACK table in the children's and teenagers' room gets a new play function, which is particularly useful when the toddler age is over and the street play table, SPIELWIESE and co. have had their day. Another advantage is that the board games can no longer simply disappear into the cupboard and be forgotten, as they are now very present in the children's room and therefore encourage play.

that alone is a good reason to stick an XXL board game on the table! And the best thing is: you get the game pieces directly with it.

IKEA LACK table as a children's table for playing

The simple, inexpensive tables in the LACK series are the perfect basis for creative hacks.

For example, you can easily convert them into a children's table. All you need is our decal, which are customised to fit the tables perfectly. You can choose from many different play motifs. How about a farm for little animal lovers. Or would you prefer a road table for little racers?

Your little ones can stand comfortably at the low tables instead of having to crawl around on the floor. The low height of the IKEA LACK tables makes them ideal as a play table in the children's room.

LACK play table with storage space

Jules used a jigsaw to cut a recess for the IKEA TROFAST box in the LACK side table. A great way to store game pieces & co. You can find the exact instructions on the blog Jules kleine Freuden.

Make your own counter for play shop

For the play shopor the play kitchenthe IKEA LACK TV bench is the ideal addition.

With the Limmaland play shop film, the small LACK table becomes a sales counter. Just like the grown-ups, you can stick a checkout conveyor and a scanner on the table and the play shop experience is just like mum and dad's in the real supermarket.

Colour for the LACK table: gluing instead of painting

Colour makes a big difference. Instead of painstakingly painting the tables, it is much easier to apply colour to the LACK table. Another advantage over paint is that you can remove the film in no time at all. We offer many different colours and motifs at yard goods that you can cut to size.

Tables from the IKEA LACK series

The IKEA LACK series is probably one of the best-known series from the Swedish company. The simple pieces of furniture are characterised by their feather-light weight and unbeatable price. On the one hand, the simple design is rather boring. On the other hand, the tables and shelves in the LACK range are the perfect basis for creative hacks.

The tables are often for sale second-hand for just a few euros and are even regularly given away. Maybe you already have an IKEA LACK table at home. Instead of throwing it in the bin, you can embellish it and turn it into a great upcycling project.

The IKEA LACK side table

The IKEA LACK side table is probably one of the best-selling pieces of furniture in the LACK series. No wonder - at just 6 euros, the LACK table is unbeatably affordable. However, this means that the small table is often seen as a disposable product with a short lifespan. What a shame! Because creative IKEA LACK hacks that enhance this piece of furniture are a dime a dozen.

Information on the IKEA LACK side table:
  • Dimensions: 55 cm x 55 cm
  • Height: 45 cm
  • Max. Max. load: 25 kg

The IKEA LACK coffee table

The LACK coffee table is just as wide as the side table, but longer. There is a second level under the table surface as a practical shelf for magazines etc., leaving more space on the table. This makes the LACK ideal as a TV table.

LACK coffee table dimensions:

  • Length: 90 cm
  • Width: 50 cm
  • Height: 45 cm

IKEA LACK on castors

The IKEA LACK tables are also ideal for use on castors. Thanks to their very low weight, the pieces of furniture are wonderfully easy to roll and can therefore be used in different rooms.
