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!
Step 1 – Give your table 2 to 3 coats of chalk paint or Fusion Mineral Paint. If you decided to paint using Fusion Mineral Paint make sure you apply the beeswax stick to areas that you would like distressed and the black to come through. 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!!)
Until my next fun project,
