IKEA cabinet makeover

What a transformation, huh?  Graphic designer Elena Ferrer transformed her tired brown LEKSVIK buffet from IKEA (€253.12) and gave it a whole new look with some fresh aqua paint and some stencilling. Try Pacific Mist from Johnstone's Paints for a similar shade. 

Elena filled her cabinet with all her favourite things including her collection of books, pretty fabrics and knitting wool.

The new colour appears to be a hit with her pet cat aswell! Try Woodies or any home improvement store for decorative stencils and use a small brush or sponge to apply. There are lots of other things you could do with this cabinet including fitting wallpaper to the back panel of the upper cabinet or adding beadboard wallpaper to the lower cabinet doors.

We just love how Elena's cabinet turned out. What do you think?
