SHE grabbed a cheap table top in IKEA but wanted to make it stand out.
So one DIY fan used her skills and limited budget to give her plain table an amazing makeover, for just £9.50.
Meg Coates took to TikTok to reveal the transformation, beginning: "Woah, ok I can't believe I've just updated my coffee table with £1.50 bins from Asda!"
She explained that she'd picked up the tabletop for £6 in IKEA, and had originally opted for metal legs on each corner, which she'd purchased o eBay.
However, she wanted to give it an update, and used the Japanese-style tables "that are all over Instagram at the moment" as her inspiration.
She cleaned the tabletop, before putting a sheet of marble-effect self adhesive film on the top.

Then she got the white plastic bins and aligned them on the table to make sure they were symmetrical, before screwing them in.
Meg then checked the table was sturdy, and declared it "good to go".
However, she then thought of ways to "give it a bit more pizazz".
"I was going to dowel the edges but my friend suggested this paint so I thought I would give it a good old go," she explained.
