Description: Decided to hack my Lack coffee table after seeing a cool jukebox table in an art gallery that was _way_ out of my price range.
I used: Lack coffee table, contact paper from a local shop, and a wall decal of the Golden Gate bridge.
1. Distress the coffee table. This was a happy accident– I first tried modding my table by covering it with contact paper for a couple weeks. When I decided I didn’t like the contact paper and peeled it off, bits were left behind on the table leaving a cool distressed-wood effect.
2. Add the decal. In this case, I used a Golden Gate bridge art decal from Target– you could also use a Blik sticker or any other sticker designed to go on walls.
