a touch of faux
The first hack I’ve received so far using faux animal print. And this Svansbo table set (can’t find it on Ikea’s site) by Georgion turned out pretty amazing.
Georgion says, “This one is the Svansbo table set, like the one you have on your site with floral painting on it, only I have the set of nesting tables.
I took the upper wood veneer table and resurfaced it with a faux crocodile hide and then primed, painted and varnished it. The lower white veneer table is resurfaced in a faux python print.
I love some of Ikea’s designs but cannot stand people coming into my home and pointing and saying Ikea, lol.”
