I love Ikea, its one of my favorite stores in the valley. The Scandinavian style is simple and chic, But sometimes I feel like everybody knows its from Ikea, and I love to be different!! So this is what I came up with for my Thanksgiving placemats this year.
You can buy plan cork placemats for super cheap, I believe them to be a dollar maybe 2. I love this IKEA hack placemat!!! I love the cork look but for my modern table, I wanted a white placemat to pop off my arrow tablecloth but couldn’t find any that would work. So this is how I took the cute cork placemat from IKEA and made it cuter.
This photo is two coats, to make it crisp and clean it took me three coats to cover without leaving streaks. (although the chalk paint took only one, I might have to look into getting white chalk paint if I do this for Christmas)
