Before and after: IKEA hack! Kids rooms chairs / Før og etter: IKEA barnestoler

BEFORE / FØR:
Image Courtesy of IKEA.com

My initial inspiration was this fabric:
More about that here... (who it's by and where to get it)

The materials / Materialene:
I just found this fabulous store that sells spray cans to grafitti artists. They have a ridiculous selection of color, and the staff is really fabulous and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Oslo Kunstmateriell if you're planning on spraying ANYTHING. The cans are NOK 40 (USD 6.50) a piece, which is nothing. It really does cover very well, and you only need one coat. And since it is grafitti paint, you know it isn't going anywhere - no more chipped paint! :D

The za za zing fabric.. LOVE it!!!

I glued this stuff on to the seat of the chair, to make it more comfortable to sit on.

AFTER / ETTER:

Voila! Like it? Indie (my 1,5 year old) absolutely loves it. If you're interested in seing what the table is going to look like, make sure you follow my blog.

I am participating at the Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch today. Head on over if you want to see more before and afters!

What a beautiful ikea hack!! The colors are great and that fabric is perfect!

One question though - how did you attach the fabric to the chair? I considered doing a similar project with a staple gun, but am quite afraid of injuring myself haha
