Repurposed Ikea Furniture: Tabletop Clock and Leg Light

Repurposed Ikea Furniture: Tabletop Clock and Leg Light

It never ceases to amaze me what people can do with basic Ikea furniture.  Charles Crawford of Crawford Creative Studio took the ubiquitous Lack Side Table and turned it into a sweet, mod clock and table lamp.

The clock is hand-painted and hand-lettered, while the funky light utilizes a brightly colored textile electrical cord for a bit more pizzazz.  You can purchase either through the CCS Modern Etsy shop.

That's not all, Charles took his Lack hacking skills a bit farther when he created this fabulously modern bench from the token Ikea table, "insulating foam, paint, two 3/4 inch steel rods, and lots of sweat."  Impressive, to say the least!

As Curbliers, I know you're all a creative bunch.  Do you have any clever Ikea hacks of your own?  Share in the comments!
