I neglected to take a picture before I started so this is one I’ve borrowed from the Ikea catalogue! Except, the table  I rescued was covered in dust and cobwebs and heavily scratched!

Supplies Needed:

  • Ikea Lack Table
  • Chalk Paint – I used a mix of my own Milk Coloured Chalk Paint
  • 120 grit Sandpaper and sander
  • Transfer Paper
  • Deco Art Lamp Black Acrylic Paint
  • No. 2 Round Brush
  • Liner Brush
  • Wax
  • Chux Cloth
Step 1 – Give your table 2 to 3 coats of chalk paint. Then using your sander distress the entire table.

Step 2 – You may ask why on earth would you want the word Love on a piece of furniture. To me, the world would be so lost without Love and that’s what inspired me and how I painted the piece 🙂 You can change the word to something that may touch and inspire you! 🙂
Print of the word love using your favourite font along with the meaning. I just pulled it straight from the dictionary! Using the transfer paper transfer it onto the top of the table. Then using a 3 round brush for the LOVE and then 10/0 script brush for the meaning dipped in Americana Black paint.

Step 3 –  Sand the wording slightly to distress.

Step 4 –  Take your chux cloth and wax the entire table to seal all of your hard work.
