Gold Legs

Along with the vintage dresser makeover, I also did a little ikea hack this summer. For those who don’t know what an ikea hack is (my husband) it’s just a modification or repurposing of an ikea product. There are so many amazing ikea hacks, but this one with its gold legs and its simple design caught my eye. The fact that it was $40 bucks total and only involved a can of spray paint didn’t hurt either! I would’ve bought the long table, but this little guy fits the space perfectly. All I did was put the legs together, paint them gold and BAM, done! :) I love to do projects and missed having a little space of my own to hold some of my favorite little things, to write letters, type, study, mostly just to decorate. :) I hung up the tassel garland I made for my mom’s picnic birthday party along with some of my other favorite things. I like leaning the pictures instead of hanging them, so I can swap them out easily. I’m sure I’ll continually change the space, but for now I like it!  :)

    • Calla! You should totally do it. It’s really easy and no the legs weren’t hard to put on. I did it all by myself when Grant was at work. you got it girl! post your pics if you do it! :)

  1. Megan, so glad you are blogging again! When school started up and the emails slowed down, I thought it might only be a summer thing. But I’m glad to see its not. Loved your last few posts. Curious about your last photo for this post. It looks like you took a bunch of photos and pasted them Altogether. How did you do that?

    • Thanks, Lauren! I used Photoshop to do the collage and just put the different images on separate layers. If you don’t have Photoshop you might be able to do it using a free online program called Pixlr.com. I’m currently using Pixlr with my 8th graders and it’s very similar to Photoshop. I’d open each image separately in Pixlr and then copy/paste each image into one document putting them on separate layers. I’ve never tried it with Pixlr.com, but I think it could work! Probably your best bet if you don’t have Photoshop! :) Let me know if you try it and it works out!
