Awesome Ikea Hack of the Week: A colourful rainbow side table or coffee table

Now that we’re into March, we’re all itching for some of that Toronto springtime weather. Until that happens, we’re all stuck with trying to brighten up our apartments with some bright colours.

Like last week, we at Toronto Rentals wanted to bring you a super, ridiculously easy Ikea hack. This one doesn’t require a drill, hammer or even paint. In about 10 minutes, you’ll end up with a perfectly bright and colourful rainbow table for your living room or bedroom, all for $50-$60.

  1. Do it. It’s one of those DIY projects that barely needs any instructions. Apply the coloured washi tape to the table top, and extend it over the sides. You can leave the legs white, or cover them with tape, too. Use the retractable blade to get a perfectly straight cut where the tabletop ends. And, make sure you apply the tape so it’s perfectly straight across the tabletop. Continue applying coloured tape and alternating colours. When it’s done, you could apply a clear lacquer over the top to protect the table. Let dry before using!

So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
