Ikea Item Used: Lack TV unit

With clients visiting my home for my work, I have to be super tidy. I bought the Lack TV unit to use as a coffee table originally but without the gloss finish it wears very quickly and it was ruined on top with grazes and stains. So I hacked it!

By buying some foam seating, I attached fabric over it and then used wide sticky back Velcro to attach it to the bench. I went for nice fabric as price wasn’t a problem for me but any thick fabric will do (foam was blue so had to hide it showing through).

I got the Velcro, foam and fabric from Dunelm but eBay has the foam for really cheap.

Doesn’t matter if you are naff at sewing as you can see from my pics haha! Because it’s all hidden under the seat.

Add some baskets to fit and done!

It’s perfect as a waiting seat, it’s narrow so it doesn’t take up hall space for walking through, AND it fits 15 pairs of shoes. Not bad for a £7 table!
