Adding Color to an IKEA Stool... Without Paint

The BEKVÄM stool from IKEA is a workhorse in the home, popping up in every room of the house and performing all kinds of functions, from step stool to pottery shelf. Its basic range of colors means you can easily customize the stool to complement your space, and that's exactly what Fellow Fellow blogger Claire did. You may think, Big deal, she just painted it... but then you might be surprised to learn that she didn't paint it!

Claire wanted a less messy and less permanent solution than paint, so she took to washi tape. The stool was disassembled, wiped down, and wrapped in aqua blue tape. Should Claire change her mind about the look later on, she can simply peel off the tape and start over again... or even layer other colors and patterns of tape over it.
