Farmhouse Table--Ikea Table Makeover




We had an Ikea table that was black which worked great for our family for many years. We recently discovered a handful of people on Pinterest who layed wood over their existing Ikea tables to create a new fresh look! We originally had a lot of black furniture in our home which we have been progressively been painting or swapping out. The gray and white make the room look so bright which I love! For the grey finish, I used a grey stain and then dry brushed some white in some areas with a sponge. I applied a satin Polycrylic for easy cleanup, and to give it just a slight shine. The wood for refinishing the table was less than $50, and the bench wood was just about $40!

The bench was made by the hubs and I on a Saturday--seriously so easy. I love the Ana White website. She lays out all the details on how to build a piece of furniture so that even beginners can tackle something like this! I got the chairs from American Furniture Warehouse--another one of my favorite place to find great deals on furniture!
