Hack Reveal and My First Vlog!

Hope you all had a great Christmas, I did.  It was busy but fun.  I had another successful install while I was at home in Mississippi.  But before I show you the great before and after photos, I thought I'd share how my Ikea hack turned out.  You can read more about Ikea hacking HERE, but basically it's become really popular to take Ikea's (known for being sleek and modern) furniture and make it your own. 
 
I've done just that with this inexpensive set of nesting tables.

I love a DIY project that easy and this was certainly one of those.  It required only two things:
 
  • The two tables
  • Gold spray paint

     
    Lately, I've been using Valspar, but there are numerous options.  I like this one because it goes on evenly and doesn't require coat after coat after coat.  Like I said, I like easy.
     
     
     
    I was feeling adventurous so I (along with my assistant, a.k.a. big sister) filmed a little video to give you a glimpse into the process and provide a quick tip.  This is my first attempt at a Video Blog (Vlog post), so forgive me if it's super cheesy.  Let me know if you like, and I'll try to do more.
