I know I’ve said this before but I’m so excited to share today’s makeover with everyone today!!
about 4 years ago for my boys and it’s in pretty bad shape. I’ve been wanting to give it a makeover for a while now.
I topcoat some Mod-smorgasbord-clear panel, and I practiced on something small. It worked perfectly!! So I thought I’T give to try this easel makeover. One of my favorite parts – you canI plan on implementing this in my son’s room, so I gave it a bit of a nautical makeover.

Collect These Supplies

Mod hodgepodge of Clear chalkboard Topcoat
Mod hodgepodge furniture Matt
Ikea easel
color
Scrapbook paper
brush
decorative rope
hot glue

First steps
As you can see, was in pretty BAD shape. My 3-year-old wrote about it, with a pen and a mess on the Board.
To get started, I have cleaned as best I could.

step 1 – color of the IKEA easel
I took out the easel and painted on two coats of white chalk paint. I let each layer dry for 30 minutes.

step 2 – Paint in Front of the panel,
I wanted to blue the table. I thought the blue against the white would be perfect. I painted on two coats and allow to dry for 30 minutes.

step 3 – Add, Erasing The chalkboard Topcoat
Now for the fun part!!!!! Add the clear chalkboard topcoat. As per the directions. I painted my first layer and let it dry for a hour, then painted, on my second layer.
Let it dry for 24 hours.

step 4 – Set table
I got a piece of chalk and rubbed it over the Board. Then I wiped it with a piece of cloth.

step 5 – Line tray with paper and Mod-hodgepodge
I wanted a “pop” add color to the drawer with some scrapbook paper. I cut the paper in half, then the size fits, the bottom of the tray.
I pulled out my “handy dandy” furniture Matt Mod smorgasbord. I have a layer on the bottom of the shell then carefully my scrapbook put paper on the top. I rubbed each of the bubbles.
Then I have some Mod smorgasbord on the top. Let it dry for 30 minutes.

step 6 – Add To add to your rope
you an extra touch to the easel I have with decorative rope. Rope is always a perfect nautical touch, right?!
I Measured it, then hot glued into place.

I’m SO happy with how my IKEA turned out easel makeover. I made a cute little banner for you (I’ll see how long that lasts “-“) and now I’ I;m ready to put it in my sons room!!


See how excited he is with the easel about his IKEA makeover!! Plus I think the tablet works better than before.
love the before-and-after-image!
After I went to this panel at a thrift store and found another. So I’ll give you a makeover for one of my other boys.
Just so everyone knows, I LOVE that clear chalkboard topcoat. I plan on a chalkboard for me now. Maybe a light coral color for my office!
