Lack Table Hack

You may remember the Thrift Shop lamps post I blogged about last month for a guest room I am working on.  I'm still working on the guest room and needed two matching tables to use as bedside tables.

I wanted to use two Ikea Lack tables but I didn't have time to drive one hour to Ikea. Instead, I found these tables at Target--they look exactly like the Lack table.
Since these will be for guests only, there wasn't a need for storage...just a place to put a clock and maybe a glass of water. Here's what they looked like in the package...
And here is what they looked like assembled...
I've seen many bloggers do Lack table hacks, I decided to try my own version using brass colored thumb tacks from the office supply store. The first step was to measure 2 inch lines and mark with a pencil. Next, using an awl, I hammered a starter hole where I wanted my tack.
 I worked on a soft rug so I wouldn't scratch the finish of the table.

Next I started hammering the tacks in. I choose a zig-zag pattern.
Once the measuring was done it went pretty quickly.
For less than $25.00 I have two bedside tables. I can't wait to get them into the room and add the finishing touches!
