White to stripe: LINNMON gets some colour

Table 1

Materials: ADILS legs, Colour duct tape, LINNMON table top

I have a small space and limited budget but I wanted to make a colourful and cheap table for my children to do their work on.

I had an old cheap white Linnmon table with 4 Adils legs from Ikea so I decided to use this!

I had some colour duct tape hanging around so I decided to use this but I soon realised I needed more colour!

I brought some cheap electrical tape from the pound shop (5 coloured rolls for a pound) and started to get sticking!

To get this effect I spaced out the colours and varied the widths of the tapes by overlapping them.

You can then varnish or use transparent sticky back plastic to seal, if you want a wipeable surface.

It only took an hour but my children love it and now work appears more fun!
