August 10, 2017 - Comments Off on Domino Feature: IKEA Hack Using Removable Wallpaper
Hey guys! Just popping in to share some fun news. We're over on Domino today, sharing a unique way to use removable wallpaper.
This project is an easy one at under 20 minutes and it gives a tired kids table (or anything else needing a little TLC) a total makeover. We used a marble pattern but we think any pattern could be equally as eye catching! Catch the article, along with some other genius ideas, right here. We're also sharing a bit more about it below!
This is IKEA's SUNDVIK children's table and chairs hacked with Wallpops! Marble Effect White removable wallpaper. The top of the table was looking a little rough because boys, hence the necessity for a little upgrade. Plus, I wanted to introduce a little more pattern to their monochrome playspace! I love the look of a marble top table but had never seen anything like that for kids (nor would I ever give them real marble, HA!). This removable wallpaper did the trick for next to nothing in under twenty minutes. Bonus, I don't have to worry about them colouring it blue since I can easily remove and replace with a fresh piece!
- Make sure to thoroughly clean and dry the table; any lingering crumbs will ruin the smooth finished surface.
- Just as with applying to a wall, you'll want to make sure the designs match up at the seam to keep it looking clean and cohesive.
- Measure and cut your pieces as close to the size of your table as possible. You'll want to avoid having too much overhang, which would make a clean finish at the corners difficult to achieve.
