How to use copper spray to customise some Ikea bedside tables

Delighted with today’s extremely inexpensive transformation of a couple of new Ikea side tables from the PS 2012 range into something unique and designed around the colour scheme of the bedroom they’re going in.
Involved were two tables, some copper Plasticote spray, Aubusson deep blue chalk paint and me with a slight hangover ~ remarkable they were done so quickly really 🙂
So, here’s a how to:
Unpack your boxes….
This is how Ikea have designed them to look……
But, like us, you can rethink them and get the paint & spray out….


Of course, the tables still look great if you don’t do anything other than build them, but it’s nice to have something individual isn’t it? 🙂
