Before and After: Ikea Lindved Table

Posted in Before and After, D.I.Y., Decor Files, Inspiration by Miss Circumstance on July 22, 2010

This is the Ikea Lindved Table….a $20 table. I jazzed it up a bit for a teenage girls room that I’m working on (yup…that’s you Miss Macie!). Here’s what I did-

I started by taking blue painters tape, and sticking it down in random crisscrossing lines, making sure the edges of the tape were stuck down nice and tight so the lines would be clean. Then I spray painted it with Rust Oleum enamel glossy-red paint. It took two coats and some good drying time, and it came out like this-

Overall super easy, pretty fast, and it gives it a bit of punch, no?

    This is awesome! I really wanna try this with some little college tables that I got from Target. I’m thinking yellow with white lines! 🙂

    Did you put a top coat on? If not, how has it held up?
