Hi my name is Denise Hardy and I love everything in connection with the home i.e. Interior Design, Hand Painting Furniture, Decorative Painting Techniques and Art.

 

I live in Alicante, Spain with my husband in a beautiful villa which we both love and work hard on making it our home.  I have been established in creating beautiful homes since 1998 and never get tired of doing what I do.

 Ikea Lack Table - Decoupaged

I purchased this table from Ikea - it is their Lack Table. I had left this table outside and the rain got to it, but unfortunately I didn't take a photo of the 'Before' once the rain had a made a mess of it.  Too eager to start on it!!  The table I purchased was in green and I needed a 'Before' photo of what the Lack Table looked like, so I went onto Ikea website and the only Lack Tables that were on it were in black, hence the Black Table instead of green.   I then decided to decoupage the table instead of throwing it away.


I wanted a 'theme' of flowers as it was destined to be outside as an extra seating area with two other chairs I have outside.  Although the chairs needed a revamp too as they were all rusty.  You can see how I revamped them   here.


I looked on google to find images of flowers and printed them off on A4 paper and then cut them out and stuck them on the table with PVA glue and then gave the table 4 coats of Polyvine varnish and hey presto - a new looking table.
