Painting Ikea Furniture

Just add color! We immediately tabbed this page while flipping through the July 2008 issue of Living Etc. It's part of a spread about using pastels in modern ways. We love the color combination and was surprised to find out that most of the pieces in this grouping were from IKEA. They simply painted them in various shades, including the table top. It gives them an entirely fresh and new look. Which reminds us...

Yesterday on AT:Chicago, there was a good question about painting IKEA's popular LACK shelves. Commenters gave a bunch of great tips, which could also be applied to painting other IKEA pieces. Check out the post here. Have any of you painted your IKEA pieces with success? Share your tips here!
