I'm running around the room with my pinwheels all aspin because I submitted these to the Ikea Hackers blog & didn't really think they'd really publish them....or at least I convinced myself they wouldn't so I wouldn't get my feelings hurt... but they did!

WHeeeeee!

Here's a corner of my craft room:


I painted the table with left over interior paint from my babygirl's room:

...then glittered it & sealed it with resin (note that any resin meant for sealing bar tops will do)

The end result...one very sparkly shiny...very pink work table!


I slipcovered my stool to make it look like a sushi roll too! See the final result in the first photo.  Grin


I've got perma-grin right now! My cheeks hurt so bad!  Grin

Here's the link! http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/03/pink-glittered-tovik-table-and-vitamin.html
Thanks for the go ahead Pixieval! Come craft in my corner anytime!

Thank you! It's definitely a do-outside type of project. I'll have to wait until warmer weather before my next project... a picnic table!  Wink

I lurk here and visit Ikea Hackers religiously, and I thought your user name looked familiar!  I love your table and stool; so cute.

Congratulations, hun! And no wonder they chose your work space! It looks like a wonderful, cheerful, inspiring crafting area that I'm completely jealous of! Hehe! The sparkly desk was totally worth the time it took you to create it! And the sushi chair looks comfy to sit on, too!

Thank you! THe chair is kind of bouncy & fun to sit on! One day I would love to get a 'swopper' but it isn't in my forseeable budget for a long long time.

Congrats!

Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!

Ikea Hackers is pretty inspiring & I've been meaning to get my table all gussied up for ages. Hopefully I'll inspire some other folks to glitter their furniture!

Thank you! I painted the room based on the color of the green on the sushi seat! I'd love to make a bunch of pillows like this...it would be the exact same construction only there would be a top & a bottom. The project cost less than $20 to do too!  Smiley
