Ingo and Stefan dining set hack

Anny gives the Ingo and Stefan a little sparkle.

“I painted I got an Ingo table and two Stefan chairs for $10 on Craigslist a few months ago. Add a can of Silver Aluminum paint ($1 clearance at Home Depot), sealant ($8 after 10% off mover’s coupon), upholstery fabric ($10 for 3 yards at a designer’s garage sale) and A LOT of time spent sanding to yield my very first Ikea hack!”

    The fabric on the chairs looks great! I’m sure that must have taken a really long time to finish!
