Inspired by abstract drip paintings that have become a recent trend in furniture projects, I used DecoArt’s Americana Décor Satin Enamels in Pure White and Dark Denim to makeover this raw wood IKEA Moppe into a cool toned stylish organization station!
- Americana Decor Satin Enamels 8oz - Pure White
- Americana Decor Satin Enamels 8oz - Dark Denim
- IKEA Moppe Organization Chest
- 1" brush
- Detail brush
- Cup of water
- Measuring tape
- 6 Small knobs
Measure to find the middle of each drawer, mark with a pencil. Pre-drill holes for knobs.
Apply two coats of Satin Enamels in Pure White to drawers and case.
Mix one part Satin Enamels in Dark Denim with four parts Pure White to create a light blue. Using your new blue apply two coats to the middle to bottom third of the two middle drawers and the entire bottom drawer.
Using your detail brush, dip it into the Pure White then your cup of water. Dap the brush across the border between the Pure White and pale blue paint. Let the watery paint drip naturally. Once the drips dry, use your detail brush again to apply additional coats of Pure White to make the drips really pop against the pale blue!
Put in new knobs. Fill drawers!
