A gorgeous mosaic side table doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It doesn’t even have to be made from real tiles. In fact, you can easily IKEA hack your way to it using just scrapbook paper.

YouTuber Barbara Miller shows us the keys to this amazing hack. She uses gold spray paint to simulate grout and a pretty marbled scrapbooking paper in place of the tiles.

The secret is using a thick sealant to make the whole thing look legit. Plus, this protects the paper from getting damaged and gives you the perfect smooth surface.

Here’s what you’ll need to create this beautiful table:

  • Scrapbook paper
  • IKEA cube table
  • Paper cutter
  • Gold spray paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Epoxy pour-on sealant
