IKEA Stool DIY Pictures

See How We Restyled This IKEA Stool WIth Some Glossy Paint

As part of our Styled by You $500 Giveaway with IKEA, Angela and I have been applying simple techniques to reenvision some of our favorite IKEA products. Today, I'm sharing another of my projects.

This BEKVAM stool ($15) from IKEA is made from solid wood and is very sturdy. However, it could definitely use a little personalization.

I thought it would be fun to add some glossy color to the stool. See what I did to refresh the look of this sturdy BEKVAM stool.

I turned to high-gloss paint in a deep navy to change the look of the stool. And to stay on trend, I colorblocked the stool's feet using gray paint.

To get a similar look, make sure to use sandpaper to rough up the wood a bit — this will help the paint to stick. I didn't prime the stool, which was fine, though it did mean I had to apply two coats of the blue. I simply used masking tape to get the clean break between the two colors.

The stool is a nice match for the bathroom, and my toddler loves using it to wash his hands and brush his teeth. It's a perfect addition!
