How To: Spruce Up an Ikea Latt Table and Chairs

Isla is at that point in her little life where she really enjoys sitting at a table and chairs like the big people. I did some research and the Ikea Latt Table seemed to be a popular choice among parents and other bloggers. Unfortunately we don’t have one where we live but my sister has one just down the road from her so she was kind enough to pick up a set for us and of course my parents wanted a set at their place too. For $26.99 you really can’t beat the price.

I knew I wanted to paint the chairs and give them a little life but I didn’t want to go out and spend the money on the supplies, so I searched in my tickle trunk of crafting goodies and found some acyclic paints I had from Martha Stewart. I couldn’t decide on a colour so I showed them to Isla and she picked two; yellow and blue. You gotta listen to her so one chair was painted yellow and the other painted blue. I left the table as is. I may still choose to paint it but for now I like the look of the wood and the pops of colour.

All you need is:

*An area to paint on covered with newspaper or cardboard
*Paint brush
*Table and chairs






Pretty easy right?! Some paint, a brush and newspaper and Isla now has a new table and chairs just for her. She loves playing with her play doh on it, colouring, painting and having the odd snack! I am so happy she loves it!

Does your little one use a table and chairs? Do you have an Ikea table?

    Looks great! Isla will have fun using that table for years to come. We have a similar IKEA set that we have been using for 8 years now.
