Ikea Table Makeover

Our patio makeover is slowly coming along. As with a lot of my makeovers they always involve smaller makeovers. The first was the round curbside dining table.

The next table I decided to makeover is this Ikea table that we have had for many years. We purchased it for Mr. Front Porch's apartment when he worked out of town for awhile. Since then it has spent the past 9 years on our patios. It is the perfect size for food prep/buffets.

Though it was/is hot as all get out I managed to get the table painted.

I decided to pull colors from the cow canvas that I have hanging up out here. I painted the bottom pistachio the same color as my Kitchenaid mixer. After staring at it for a day I decided I did not like it the way that it was.

I took it back out in the yard and rubbed some stain over it.

I think it looks much better now.

Still pistachio but not neon pistachio.

    1. Thanks Cindy. I find it hard to play with just one color. The chicken and her chicks I found at a concrete yard decor shop called Fraziers on the way to Round Top Texas. She is super heavy!

  6. Love your blog and ideas!
    I have a question: did you treat the Ikea table in any way to leave it outdoors? Love the look, but my Alabama humidity would cause mildew, I'm afraid.

    1. Thanks Joanne. No I have never treated it. I like my wood pieces outside to look aged by the elements. It actually would get wet at our last house. Here at the new house we have a much larger outdoor space so it never risks getting rained on. None of my pieces out on the back porch or front porch have gotten mildew on them except for a picture that was made from particle board and got very damp from when Harvey came thru. I was surprised nothing else mildewed after that but everything else was good to go.
