SnipSnap DIY: Update Your Old (Boring) Ikea Table for Less Than $15

I’m completely┬ádependent on frugal fashion, craft, and DIY blogs. (Hello, Pinterest!) It comes with the couponing territory: once you discover how to eat, dress, and craft for (almost) free, you become addicted. Because I’m sort of in spring cleaning mode, I’m extra excited about DIY home decorating deals. Today I stumbled across this basic IKEA coffee table rejuvenation project by Erika Tapia Schrieber of The Fab and Frugal. The whole, 7-step process transforms one of those boring old college dorm coffee tables into a sleek character piece for your more mature self.

Best of all? All you need to make the table is faux leather, foam, and a lightweight staple gun. You should be able to purchase the fabric at Jo-Ann Fabric for under 15 bucks, but if you SnipSnap this coupon, you’ll save 50%!
