Bug Table Ikea-Hack

By: Lilybee Mar 13, 2007

I actually saw this credenza here first.... oooh, I love the word credenza. credenza. cred... Okaaay.

It's available at http://vivavi.com/ and is in this month's edition of Domino.

It's completely lovely and caused me to seriously consider pulling a bank heist, (George Clooney makes it seem so easy) But instead of that I deciced to do this:

I found some anatomically correct butterfly clip art, traced them onto wood effect contact paper, stuck 'em onto a LACK table (from Ikea) that we happen to have and there we go... 

Huh. It occurs to me that I have been talking about contact paper A LOT  .... I don't actually work for the nice folks at Grip-Tac, I just seem to be using their stuff a lot....

Anyway, not as pretty as the  Credenza but it means I don't have to resort to crime and land back in Sing Sing...

Hey, nice work!

Do you know how to get Grip-Tac© or anything relative online ? 

Isn't it amazing how creative we get just because we're not overly paid.  I love it!

Awesome idea.  Heres my attempt:

Holy mackerel, I LOVE your idea. I remember seeing that credenza and nearly wetting my pants... Er... Anyway, thanks for the affordable, DIY version! I'm definitely going to have to try it out on some of my furniture.

I saw that credenza too and started drooling.  I was considering modifying and Ikea/thrift find with decoupage, but maybe contact paper is the way to go.

Well done, love layout of your design.


this is the best ever

great! looks really nice!
perhaps i'll adapt this work (of course in orange paper) for my old, shitty LACK...

lovely! though i really love my white furniture (cheap ikea things) that particular piece inspires me a lot ... i should get my hands on some contact paper too!
lurve it! i saw that piece as well, and thought about hacking my own dresser.......love the ant detail on the leg!
