This simple IKEA bistro set got a major makeover and I can’t wait for you to see every detail! I think you’ll love the transformation.
I bought this bistro set an entire year ago. It’s a perfect blank slate so I’ve been waiting for a good excuse to give it the makeover it deserves. I’ve been tie dyeing for about a year so of course I needed to give it the indigo shibori treatment!

First I started by painting my bistro set. You of course need to make sure the surface is clean then spray a light even coat of the black flat spray paint I have linked above. Painter’s Touch is what I use for everything. If you need some special spray paint tips I put this post together!
I didn’t want to overwhelm you all in one place so I actually show you the tutorial for the patio cushions here!
The ‘table cloth’ type thing going on is actually just a square of the drop cloth! I died it when I dyed my cushions. Once it is dyed, spray a layer of the spray adhesive on the top of the table. Be generous with the amount you’re using!
I let this dry then flipped the table on it’s top and used the adhesive to glue the ends to the bottom of the table for a cleaner look.
I attached my seats and was all done! I love the way this turned out. So fun and trendy. I love a good makeover!
