How to Paint IKEA Furniture

Do you have a piece of IKEA furniture that you really want to do something with? Check out this extreme IKEA cabinet makeover! New-Old furniture!

When we think of IKEA furniture we often think of partical board or something that is a lost cause if it is damaged.

However this piece is a different story, it is IKEA but made of solid pine. Something we can really work with here. There are pieces that are made of wood from IKEA, and in these cases we can do an extreme IKEA cabinet makeover!!

How To:

Okay so a friend brought me this cabinet, she picked out the color Collard Greens, but she knew I was going to do my thing. Because well…that’s what I do.

So the first thing to do with this was prep. This piece was made of solid pine so no crazy extensive prep was needed.

Because this piece was getting new hardware, I needed to plug the drawer holes. I used my Dixie Belle Mud and applied it to the holes. Later I sanded it down.

I fixed the top of this piece with No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut. Check out this tutorial video of the process!

We are now going to apply the “dress” A.K.A paint. I started with two coats of Collard Greens. You want to open all the drawers and doors so you can get all the sides and tops, I also paint the bottom trim of the drawers.

Once I painted my base coat of Collard Greens, I actually did a little blending and shading with the other colors listed. Check out this is a live video here which shows you exactly how I did it.

After I finished blending and shading I allowed the piece to to dry. I then took my 120 grit sandpaper and distressed the edges as well as sanding across the doors and drawers.

To really complete this Ikea cabinet makeover, I added some waxes. Wax not only adds dimension but adds another layer of protection. Not to mention you get a beautiful buttery finish if you use it properly. My first step was adding Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in clear.

Hi Bethany!

Incredible Carolyn! Have a great weekend ☺️ Thank you!!

Ransomed Relics Here is Carolyns page!

Lovely tutorial.😍❤️

That is amazing ❤️❤️❤️

I agree, I would try really subduing the scallop at the top

Merry Christmas to you and your family, from me in outback Australia hope you enjoy your time together. Please set aside some prayers for us out here, we are in severe drought and the country seems to be on fire. thank you, you are a huge inspiration for me XXX🙏🙏🙏

Incredible how you can pick up a paintbrush freehand and your artwork looks like a billion dollar piece of art ...The Lord has blessed you with such a beautiful talent ♥️ This piece is a big winner !!!! Great work , Carolyn

Coffee Bean is a great color. I used it as a wash with two other Dixie Belle paints on a table top. I always get questions as to how many colors of stain I used to achieve the look. It really looks stained, not painted.

Amazing brushes and excellent quality paint!

So glad you didn’t give up on it! I love that you made it a story for each panel. Great job Bethany!

Trying all different styles atm, I was always French country, French Provincial. I am about to try an image transfer as you continue to inspire me with your amazing pieces.

Wishing you and all of your family a very Merry Christmas. God bless you and your family. Prayers continuing for all of you.

That color completely ties it all together for me, looks amazing.

Blended coastal colors & farmhouse neutrals are my favorites.

Doing a table for a customer, wants a similar top, do u recommend the coffee bean or stain? Which is easier?
