IKEA is a wonderful place to shop if you’re trying to stick to a smaller budget, but then you run the risk of having the same pieces as everyone else. Which is why IKEA hacks are the perfect solution. Once you paint and stencil it with your favorite patterns and colors, then you’ll have an upcycled piece that nobody has! You can easily create a luxe look on a budget with this simple DIY hack using Mandala Stencils from Royal Design Studio on a circular end table. Watch the video to find out how!
- Prajna Mandala Stencil by Royal Design Studio (size medium)
- 3” Royal Stencil Brush
- White and Pink Chalk Paint or any color of furniture friendly paint
- Foam roller and tray
- Spray adhesive
- Paper towels
Step 1: Clean the surface then apply 2 coats of pink paint. Allow to dry between coats.
Step 2: Apply spray adhesive to the back of the mandala furniture painting stencil and secure the stencil in place on the table.
Step 3: Load and offload your stencil brush with white paint. Offloading means to remove the excess paint you’ve loaded onto the brush onto a paper towel so it disperses the paint and helps you use minimal paint. Now your stenciling won’t bleed under!
Step 4: Stencil the design using soft to medium pressure and in a circular motion. Remove the mandala design and allow the table to dry.
Step 5: Apply 2 coats of semi-gloss top coat and allow to dry between coats.
