diy whitewashed planters

Shabby chic decor is very popular today because old days have their own charm. There are many ways in which various surfaces can be given age and shabby appearance: aging, weathering, whitewash, patina and rusty surfaces. Whitewashing means covering surfaces with white paint or chalk paint, which gives it a desperate and somewhat shabby look. Whitewashing isn’t difficult at all, and you can get the look easily.

You can torture wood, clay, terracotta, and many other materials; You can give your floors, walls, or even a fireplace a whitewashed look for a shabby chic charm. Today we’re going to see how to torture and whitewash various pots and planters to give your outdoor and indoor spaces a cool, rusty look. The easiest way is to use white acrylic paint and a brush. Mix about one part of paint with two parts of water in a cup. Brush over pot, if you think there is too much paint on the brush, just wipe it with a paper towel. Let dry for 1 hour. If you want a desperate look, after the paint has dried, use sandpaper and sand off some of the paint. Sand down more to make the pot even more desperate. After sanding, wipe the pot with a damp rag and then spray two coats of acrylic sealer on the pot, preferably a matte one. If it’s a wooden planter it can be a little trickier: you can see lots of tiny bubbles as you brush the mixture onto the surface. Immediately after spreading, wipe the watery mixture with a paper towel before it can completely penetrate the wood. Keep doing this until you are happy with the way it looks.

If you want to have a cool home bar but are not ready to buy one just yet, this round-up can be a source of inspiration for you. We've put together the coolest ideas for hacking IKEA items, building a home bar, or hacking existing IKEA bar carts. They can be used both indoors and outdoors.

IKEA bar cart

A bar cart has several advantages, and most importantly, it is mobile and can be moved anywhere - both indoors and outdoors, which makes it more functional. Second, a bar cart is a cool idea for a small space - it doesn't take up a lot of space and it doesn't look bulky. Take an IKEA Raskog, Bygel or Forhoja cart and turn it into a masterpiece with paint, stencils, new rollers, legs and contact paper. Create a large mobile bar with two or more IKEA carts or make your own cart by placing a desk or table on wheels.

IKEA bars and liquor cabinets

One of the easiest ideas to make a simple open home bar is to take an IKEA desk or table and renovate it to fit your space by adding suitable shelves and holders. You can even add roles. Another idea is to hack an IKEA cabinet or dresser like Ivar, Rast, Kallax, Valje or other pieces and here the possibilities are endless! You can make it half open and half closed, keep it closed, repaint, uncouple, stencil, cover with wallpaper and contact paper, embellish and do whatever else comes to mind. If you want something special and more creative, consider making a home bar out of IKEA Kangglig boxes or designing a Murphy bar out of an IKEA bathroom shelf and so on. Get smart!
