IKEA Kids Table Makeover

I love looking at something that is plain and boring and seeing what it could be with a little work. For my munchkins 2nd birthday, I wanted to get her a little kid table but I didn’t want to spend a couple hundred dollars on something she will only use for a few years. That is when I saw this table on Ikea’s website for $20!


The closest ikea store is in Atlanta… Let’s be honest… I am like a cat in water when it comes to Atlanta. I am SO thankful for friends who go to Atlanta and ikea all the time!

After I got the table, I went to Pinterest. I saw so many ideas like this and this. There are so many ideas and they are all very helpful in getting me started.

Here is my completed table:




My husband is going to take the table and chairs this week to get Lowes to cut plexiglass for it but when I received E’s tin tea set in the mail today, I couldn’t wait a second longer to share these pictures! I will be sure to post pictures from her birthday!

You can make a table just like this! Here is what you need to make your own :

ikea table
BEHR ballet white paint
BEHR ballerina pink
3/8 of a yard of fabric
(had left overs that I can use on something else too)
plexiglass from Lowes
