|Easy Laat Table Makeover|
|(Picture from Ikea website)|
|Seriously, we used these tables all. the. time!|
Obviously 10 years later, our tables had seen better days. They had some crayon markings on them (got those out with a magic clean eraser) and they definitely had survived some bumps and bruises along the way (aka, they were very well loved).
|Laat tables - well loved and more than a little worn out.|
|The magic clean eraser did wonders on the crayon markings, but there were stills some dings and scratches along the top|
|It really helps when you marry a genius.|
|I used a sewing cutting mat to protect the kitchen table underneath.|
|Hey, that's fitting quite perfectly!|
|Somehow it looks like it weighs so much more now...|
*Actual paint used was Krylon Color Master Paint + Primer in Gloss Blue Ocean Breeze
|This was coat #1 - I tried to balance the pieces to maximize paint-able space.|
Doing light layers seemed to be the trick. I did end up using the whole can of spray paint to get the right coverage (thank you weird Swedish force field).
Once we let it dry for a few hours, it really started to look nice.
The only thing left was to put it back together.
|The marble top slipped right back into the notches on the base no problem with the thin layer of contact paper|
|Hey, that's kind of pretty!|
|I love how it is matching elements in the rest of the room!|
We saved something from ending up in the dump, and now it has a brand new life in a "grown-up" teen room for many more years to come.
What a cleaver and craft day you had. I love the marble top and the blue paint is stunning Nearly every family I’ve known with little ones own an IKEA table just like this one Bravo Starns family Bravo!!
Your teen room looks amazing and the table is a perfect addition! You are truly Clever and Crafty!!!
