An interior design expert has shared her DIY furniture hack and social media users can’t believe how expensive her cheap end tables look.
Laryssa Meira, who shares tips and tricks on TikTok, shared how to make the budget-friendly side tables by hand.
Next, she stacked the four shells on top of each other and attached them with E-6000 glue, available for $3.14 from Amazon.
To create the illusion of a connected piece, she sprayed all sealed shells in a matte black shade.
The second half of the quick DIY consists of serving plates, also purchased from Dollar Tree.
Meira covered them with a primer spray paint before applying a second coat of marble effect paint for a chic look.
Finally, she glued the serving plates to the stacked bowls and placed them in a living space where they could be admired.
Commenters were impressed with how stylish the tables looked.
One person said: “WOW! That looked great!”
“SO CUTE, when I get my first apartment I’m going to do some crafts, thanks for the idea,” said another.
“I made 2 of these! I love her!! Ty!!”
In the comments, Meira said the color of the finished end tables came courtesy of Montana Can’s Marble Effect Spray Paint ($13.94). Amazon.
She said: “They are a bit pricey compared to regular spray but I’ve had mine for over a year and use it often and I still have loads of it!!!”
She also optionally finished the tables with Rust Oleum Clear Gloss for $16.14 Amazon.
This isn’t the first time the interior design pro has used Dollar Tree for projects at home.
She recently made a candle decoration using clear glass bowls and stone effect spray paint.
