Materials: Tovik, Vitamin, Paint, Glitter, Resin, Sherpa, Fleece, Thread
Description: I wanted to fancy up my ikea work space with a little whimsy and sparkle!
For the Vitamin stool I made a slipcover which looks like a sushi roll from sherpa to represent the rice with it’s fabulous texture and appliqued fleece for the avacado, salmon and cucumber. The seaweed wrap is also black fleece. All sewed up, it fits over the top of the stool very nicely.
For the Tovik table, I painted it with some leftover paint I had from my babygirl’s nursery, then proceeded to coat the painted table with a variety of glitters and sealed it all with resin…following the instructions on the resin package.
So there you have my ikea hacks. I have a wicked-fun craft room to get creative in!
