The Ikea Kiddy Furniture Makeover

This is our second set of Ikea kiddy table and chairs, they get a lot of wear and tear so they were screaming out to be painted and made over.

We chose the colours together, love the bright, clashing, vibrance that signifies her youth, anything goes!

Still using up the flowery plastic sheeting I had in the cupboard doing nothing, it was bought for another use years ago and never used, good to see it getting an airing.

We painted little blackboard "squares" to personalise the chairs for when her friends pop over, little things really do please little people, she was thrilled that she could now allocate seating!

Had a little issue with masking tape, so forked out for some Frog Tape and issues gone, well worth it.

Off to start my next project, the (found in the loft) pine bedside cabinets, I feel a bit of shabby chic coming on!

Linking up with Miss Mustard Seed for:



  1. That flowery pattern is great. So much fun colourwise for little children.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful set!
    I am looking forward to see what you create next :-)

  3. You have done a great makeover there! I love the personalisation.

  4. I LOVE little chairs - these look amazing, you're very clever x

  5. You have done an amazing job, this looks so good. Mich x

  6. I do like that a lot! The flwoery print really goes well with the blue. I bought Frog tape for glossing but it wouldn't stick for me.
