Another fun IKEA project, this time for little B. She didn’t have a table and chairs set yet, and every time we go anywhere with one, she just loves them! I wanted to make something unique for her, and could NOT pass up the price of this set, the Latt table & chairs ($29 CAD!). It was pretty simple to come up with my idea, I went with a grey stain, chalkboard top, coral seats and gold dipped feet. I may upgrade down the road to a fabric padded seat, I can already tell the paint probably won’t last too long on the melamine. I’m on the hunt now for something that will look great.
I stained everything prior to assembly. The pine took the stain beautifully! I used the same grey that I did on the dining table Ben made me last year, for someone it showed way darker on this wood. I love it though!

I went 3″ up from the bottom and taped off so I could spray paint my gold on. I did 2 coats of paint on the chalkboard and the seat. I suspect I will have to put more chalkboard paint on at some point to freshen it up, which is fine.
I left everything out in the sun to get good and dry before assembly.
Just perfect for my sweet, she loves her ‘big girl’ table!
The rose gold spray paint is this one, it’s gorgeous!! I’ve literally been painting everything in my life gold, I can’t get enough haha
