I’ve transformed a boring IKEA coffee table using £1.50 containers from Asda and now they look way too expensive

A KEEN DIY fan revealed how she transformed a plain and boring coffee table into a seemingly out of place piece of furniture in Interiors Magazine.

Meg Coates, who has a TikTok account under the name @megcoatez, stunned her followers when she showed off her before and after – and explained that she achieved the new look thanks to a £1.50 purchase from an Asda supermarket.

Meg posted a detailed video on her social media page, showing her followers her formerly simple white basic table, with slender golden legs.

He then carved out for her the purchase of two plain white boxes in an Asda cart, before opening for her, she embarked on an ambitious recycling mission.

Meg, who also runs a successful YouTube DIY channel, explained: “Can’t believe I just updated my coffee table with £1.50 containers from Asda.

“The coffee table top was from IKEA for £6 and I got the legs on eBay, and just wanted to update them again.”

Meg has continued to show off her gradual transformation, as well as inspiring the look.

She said, “So I decided to put a piece of marble on it. And I wanted Japanese-style legs to be all over Instagram right now.”

The clip then cuts into the Meg making sure the two boxes I decided to use as legs are symmetrical, before screwing them tightly into place at the bottom of the table top.

However, she was far from finished, explaining that she wanted to give the table “more excitement”.

After one of Meg’s friends suggested she spray paint the legs so they would work better aesthetically with the newly marbled top.

Then she showed what the table currently looks like – just as a beautiful bouquet of flowers elevates it even more.

She said: “This change cost me £9.50. I really like it.

“Well, yes, I have boxes like table legs but if they look like that, who cares?”
