I love a good IKEA hack, and my favourite way to make inexpensive IKEA pieces look more high-end is to give them a coat of paint. I've painted many pieces of furniture over the years, so today I'm sharing all of my tips and tricks with the hope that it helps and inspires you to grab a paintbrush and get started!
01 Always scuff sand the piece
02 Clean with a tack cloth
03 Use a good bonding primer
04 Wait in between coats
05 Use a paint sprayer or foam roller
06 Use a high quality paint + primer
