Who doesn’t like DIY projects! And, even if you don’t like to do these projects yourself, you definitely enjoy watching others taking everyday objects and turning them into beautiful decoration pieces.

And for all the DIY addicts out there, TikTok is the place to be.

There are so many users who upload their projects there that it’s practically impossible to watch everything.

As for those who get inspiration from these videos and then go home and start working on their own DIY projects, those are doomed because they will soon have no more room in their house to put all the stuff they make.

This is exactly what the person who came up with the lyrics of “I’m mad at TikTok” had in mind.

“I’m mad ad TikTok, they tricked me, had me thinking I could do arts and crafts…” the song goes.

And, indeed, all the DIY videos make you want to give the project a try. Just like the one a woman posted about a year ago and went viral.

With more than 4 million likes, it seems that the DIY side table made of dollar-store bowls was a hit among the TikTok community.

As you can see in the video below, the woman buys plastic bowls from the dollar store and she uses spray on them in order to make them black and matte.

After that, she simply uses glue and glues them one on top of the other in such a way that they look like balls.

On top of them, she glues a plastic tray which she has bought in white color and used some black paint to make it look like marble.

And, guess what! That was it. The DIY bowl side table is ready.

TikTok users loved the project.

“[I]t looks expensive when you don’t really know what it is,” someone wrote.

Some users also commented that she should have put something heavy inside the bowls so that the table is weighted at the bottom, which actually makes sense.

Others gave some ideas that would be nice, although the result would be of a different style.

One idea was to put gumballs in the bowls and give it a game-room style, while others suggested she should have omitted the black spray and gone for flowers or something fancy inside so it would show.

For those who enjoyed this DIY but are looking for alternatives when it comes to the quality of the bowls or the look of the end result, there are other Internet users who have shared their own take on this project.

A Facebook user used dollar-store cereal bowls and made a beautiful side table, while someone else went for gold instead of black and gave the table a different style.
