this pair of makeovers comes from talented d*s reader elien popelier in bruges, belgium. elien found this first piece, an adorable wooden desk, at a local thrift store, and gave it a fresh new look with tape! after taping a line pattern onto the surface, she painted the remainder to create a wooden-stripe look. great work, elien! elien also turned ikea boxes into a fantastic coffee table with storage, so be sure to check that out after the jump!

elien used a set of ikea trissa boxes (about $7 each) to create this large coffee table that matches her living room sofa. after attaching the boxes together, elien added wheels, a fresh coat of paint, and some funky wallpaper for the interiors and voila! a brand new table. great work, elien!
