My Kitchen Table!! DIY TUTURIAL

With all of the DIY tutorials on Pinterest right now, I just had to write about my own little project that I am so very proud of!!

Yep, that’s right people……I made this….if I can do this….anyone can!!!

I started with IKEA’s unfinished Ingo/Ivar DIning table and chairs and put them together using their instructions.

                   Once assembled I started staining the entire piece….

and once the first coat was dry, everything needed a second coat.

The next day I started my painting…..

  The technique was quite simple…..I had a white paint and a teal paint and a brush for each.  I dry brushed a coat of white over the stain and then I brushed the teal color over that making sure some of the stain and white paint showed through.

I was going for a semi antique/worn look.

Next, I did the same technique to the legs of the table….

The last step was to add a clear coat of polyurethane to the top of the table to make it shiny but also to make it more durable!

Lastly, I had my hubby help me carry it into our brand new kitchen and then I began a photo session that lasted for 15 minutes!!

                       It was like the paparazzi was here…….:)

  1. How much stain do you recommend buying? I want to do mine in ebony/light blue. I already have blue paint and just need the stain.

    • I bought a quart but had lots left over…..the tiny container might be enough but you may have to buy 2 of those depending on how many coats you use. I did 2 coats and a poly finish coat.
