Cheap solution for a nice looking dining table
After moving into our new home, there was so many items of furniture to buy. One if these items that we needed was a dining table. After seeing some tutorials to make one from scratch on Pinterest, I really wanted to do so myself but really did not have the time or resources to do so.

We looked at other tables but our budget was quite limited, we wanted to sit at least 6 and I really did not want something cheap looking that I'd want to replace in a couple of years time.

So after a lot of internet browsing, I found this INGO table at Ikea: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/14630009/ aswell as the IVAR chairs: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/68156009/.

They are a pretty simple style which meant I could easily put two tables together, and coupled with 8 chairs it came to less than £200.

We have oak furniture and blue and grey colours in the room so I decided to stain the top of the pine table with an oak stain and to paint the legs a light grey. Choosing the grey was a complete ball ache, who would have known there were so many different shades of grey? Anyway I ended up settling on a colour called 'Fog' from B&Q's own range. It is a one coat any surface emulsion which made the job quite easy.

Let me know what you think? Isn't it amazing what a lick of paint can do
