I’m super excited about this DIY!
I bought a LINDVED table from Ikea for $20
I saw a few posts on Pinterest (my favorite site) that were similar to this and I decided to make this table my own. Here is the link to my Pinterest in case you are interested.
-Lindved table from Ikea
-Frog tape/ painters tape
-straight edge, ruler, 90 degree ruler
-pencil & eraser
-gold spray paint (I used rust-oleum metallic finish gold spray paint)
-clear protectant spray paint
I started by taking the top of the table out of its original box. I then started taping off my table in the pattern that I wanted
Honestly this was harder than I thought it would be. It was really hard to get straight lines and 90 degree angles. My strategy started with drawing a line across the table which wasn’t in the middle. Then using my 90 degree angle ruler, I made the angles with the tape. The key to this design is to have straight cuts off the end of the tape.
Then comes the fun part! Painting.
I went outside and started spray painting the top of my table. Make sure you do even coats.
I think I ended up doing 2-3 coats of the gold paint, letting it dry in between. Then I let the whole thing dry about 24 hours. I took the tape off and assembled the whole table, using the Ikea directions.
In the end I ended up loving the table. It adds some fun to an otherwise boring table.
Let me know if you end up doing a DIY similar to mine!!
