Another project finished and ready to share. We wanted to refresh our bathroom and after having it painted in gray, I decided that the two laundry wicker baskets there, also deserve some uplifting. Before painting anything you have to remember to clean it thoroughly. The baskets were a bit dusty so I dusted them with…
Ikea stool turned to coffee table.
When you rent a apartment and you sometimes don’t want to rely on the furniture that is there. You can’t give the furniture back as it came with the flat and the landlord would not agree to that but you want it to look different, be more in your style. Over years of living in rented accommodation I figured out many ways of adding my personal touch to the rented furniture – obviously without making permanent changes to the furniture pieces.
One of them below – an IKEA coffee table cover. What you need to make it is a saw, hammer, some nails sand paper and wood wax. The wood is from reclaimed pallets. It is reply important to dry the pallets before using them. Otherwise if they are still damp the planks might become skewed and the table surface not even.
Another way of making your rented apartment with random furniture a nit more like your own.
I had this ikea lamp with akredytacji quite worn lampshade. I decided to knitt this orange cover and have to say it werkend out really well. Looks great with the light on and also during the day.
rented furniture a bit more your own.
Another item completed over this summer. I was working very hard to make my outdoor area colorful and cozy 🙂
We have a big table and chair but I had no small table that could be used when sitting on the bench. I found three small pallets and made this table out of them. I had to cut “legs” from – the bars at the bottom. I then used these bars I between two pallets – bottom one is upside down, then the bars from cut from the second pallet and the third one on the top. All elements connected together with the screws. Before connecting them I painted each of the parts with outdoor green paint and finished with the outdoor varnish. Finally I attached the wheels.
This palet table is super handy as can be moved around easily.
And this is the leg part cut off from one of the palets that I used in between two other palets to extend the height of the table.
I have finished this piece a while ago, but got quite busy over the summer months and never published the any photos. So here you go.
I found this lovely item on adverts and immediately had this idea of repainting it white. I decided not to get rid of the mirror part as I simply liked it better without the mirror.
It was a rainy weekend. The weather and greyness made me feel quite lazy, but it did not stop me from finishing a few projects. It was nice and fulfilling to stay at home and bring a few things back to live.

I found this old foldable table on a bric-a-bra sale and decided to rejuvenate it. Her is what I ended up with 🙂 I used 150 sandpaper on a palm sander. It it could be done by hand with some elbow grease. Lightly sand the entire table and legs. You do not need to remove…
