Happy Friday … IKEA Mini Up-Cycle Project
Hello friends and welcome to the blog today. If this is your first time stopping by, I hope you stay for a while and consider subscribing.
Happy, Happy Friday. I hope everyone is doing well today, and here we are at the end of another wonderful week.
Earlier this week I was feeling a lot of anxiety and stress about my move because I had been doing the tours, and reaching out and negotiating with no responses. But I’m here to tell you that I got my place, and I move in just 2 1/2 weeks.
Currently I’m in packing mode, and getting everything ready, but just because I’m packing doesn’t mean that I don’t have time for a mini-project.
IKEA Up-Cycle … Vittsjo Shelf
For the past few years every piece of furniture was purchased without thought, and only need. I only got serious about matching anything together about a year ago, so I purposefully purchased bland white furniture. At the time I had no plans because I figured a good color paint would contrast with that furniture.
However as a renter, my painting is limited and I just don’t want to go though all the frustration of having to paint it back, so I would purchase plain furniture that could work with any space.
I’ve only had this shelf for a few months but since I had some supplies left over from a previous project I figured it was a perfect way not to let anything go to waste.
The supplies I used were:
Here’s what I did…
- First I cleared my shelf, and wiped it down so the tiles could have a better adhesion to the surface
- I planed out how I wanted the design to look and spacing
- From there all I did was peel off the back and stick them down
- I used a few heavy bins to rest on the tiles and keep them down, and waited an hour before I removed them
- Then I just styled my self and that was it!
This was the easiest project that I’ve done in a long time, and I would highly recommend these to transform any piece of furniture. You could also use kitchen wall tiles if your going for a different look. There are hundreds of different designs to choose from, and the possibilities are endless.
With that I’ll end here. Thanks so much for checking out my post today. I want to thank everyone who told me to be patient in this moving process and not stress. Your kind words mean so much to me during this time.
Have a great weekend! — Peace —
