How To: Customize a Plain Wooden Dining Table

Darling Knees 's February Jumpstart Project 2009

Title: Darling Table Name: Darling Knees Time: One afternoon Cost: $15-$100

Darling Knees purchased a plain BJÖRKUDDEN table from IKEA and saw a world of possibilities. Taking a bit of vibrant blue paint and a white ink pen, the once plain table has taken a whole new life, transforming the simple surface top to something a lot more artistic.
