Greetings friend! I’m so glad you stopped by today. If this is your first time here, you can expect to find lots of rental friendly decorating ideas!
Lately, I’ve been working on our family room. It’s slowly turning into a lovely costal cottage space with some simple DIYs. One of the biggest eye sores in the room was the IKEA kids table set.
It sticks out like a sore thumb in any room. Grrr. IKEA gets me every time!
Kids Table Set Makeover
I used left over spray paint and interior paint to make the set more appealing. The little green stool got two coats of Rustoleum yellow (spray paint). My son painted Valspar’s primer/paint Seal Gray on the blue chair (I bought a quart for my coffee table makeover, you can find more details here). The red table was painted with primer spray paint and then I mixed Poppies paint powder into a creamy white latex, and gave the top of the table a chalk board finish.
Another small change I made in the room is the couch. My husband and I always remove the large back cushions to create more room for lounging. I decided to remove all of the throw pillows and the back cushions and placed two king size pillows. I’ll keep you posted on how that works out. Right now, it’s a better solution than buying a new couch and it does make the seat deeper. I actually love the way it adds to the coastal cottage feel. My husband immediately loved it after he sat down.
