Ikea Latt Makeover

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

We got this little table and chairs set for Gavin about 15 months ago from ikea.

The whole set is $25, which is an awesome price. But it has taken a bit of a beating. I had to take it apart to re-glue a section that was pulling apart because Gavin drags the table around. So I decided to give it a nice new coat of paint too!

I painted the seats before the table top which worked out really well because the stripes are a little too crazy for such a big area. I think they are cute on the seats though.

The stripes on the chair also worked out really well because one has some damage on the set. It was kind of cracked/creased, so a little sanding and a busy paint job did wonders for it.

What do you think? A good improvement?
