how to change the colour of your scale

sarah’s new bathroom colours didn’t match the ikea scale she had. no worries. 20 minutes later, she had a scale in the blues she wanted.

“i found the pattern for my shower curtain on the bed bath and beyond site and was able to blow it up using a photoshop filter. the ikea kilan scale is approximately 9″ x 9″ but due to only having letter size paper i split the image in half and printed it out on two sheets.





once printed i cut out the new design and used doublestick tape to secure it on the scale. i then used clear contact paper (which can be purchased for cheap at home depot) to secure the new design in place.”

    This rocks :-) ! Ikea seems to have a real thing about red for some reason while I, sadly, do not. Not to be critical — or at least not VERY critical — I just prefer more relaxing colours in my home surroundings, is all).

    for 50 cents a sheet, Joann fabrics has great 12×12 sheets of paper to match any decor

    Love the idea of refacing with paper and contact paper.
