It was published today!!! Check it out!
Have you ever heard of ikea hackers? It's this fanastic site where you can submit your 'hacked' ikea furniture, housewares, etc.
I did my hacks last fall, but am just now finally getting around to blogging about it & submitting it to the blog. I have no idea if they will be published & it takes about 10 days or so for a new hack to appear once submitted...so we'll see I guess.
First I altered the ikea "vitamin" stool to make it into a piece of stylized sushi! The seat cover is constructed with sherpa fabric to represent the rice. Various colored fleece was appliqued onto it for the filling as well as the seaweed wrapper in black...which I sewed all around the edge to make the roll.
I love how it turned out so fun!
I then altered my work table. It is a tovik corner table in unfinished wood.
I painted it with leftover interior paint from my babygirl's room.
After the paint was dry, I covered the table top in a thick coating of resin (following the manufacturer's instructions)
...& various pink glitters.
It really has a lot of sparkle! I now use my table in most of my product photograpy for my etsy shop.
Now I'm thinking about glittering my kids' picnic table. I bet it would look fabulous in silver!
Yo Adrian! - A quick study.
