One of the many things I love to do is go in search of new goodies that just need a little TLC and be given a new lease on life. This was the case for this Ikea Lack Table along with a little side table that I picked up at the same time. Sharing the $5 Garage Sale Ikea Lack Table Make over that turned a sad dust covered table into something a little more!
The $5 Garage Sale Ikea Lack Table Make Over
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!
Ikea Lack Table
Chalk Paint – I used a mix of my own Milk Coloured Chalk Paint
120 grit Sandpaper and sander
Deco Art Lamp Black Acrylic Paint
No. 2 Round Brush
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.
And ta daaaaaa here you have a made over $5 Garage Sale Ikea Lack Table!(Boy what a mouth full!!)
