Quick Ikea Office Chair Hack

I swore I wasn’t going to buy an Ikea office chair. I was going to scour the web for some vintage Eames beauty or something like that. But darnit if that Ikea siren song didn’t call: “simple, comfortable, modern… affordable…” And you can walk out the door with it the day you need it.

I really do think the Patrik Swivel chair is all of those things. Up top, at least. But its base could look better.

Rustoleum’s Metallic spray paint in Brass is the best gold. I love how it turned out, and it couldn’t have been easier: because it’s Ikea, the base is already apart from the chair and ready for painting!

I can’t wait to show you how our Vitsoe-inspired office shelves turned out.

P.S. Other home design posts you may have missed: our home tour, a fresh bed, and new lighting.

    I love this! So simple yet effective….why do I never think to do these sorts of things?!

    So excited to see more of the new house – I adore your style!

    I’d give anything if I could purchase Ikea online, without paying exorbitant shipping costs! But alas, I live in Oklahoma and will have to keep dreaming. I can’t drive to Plano every month to peruse!

    Also–I am looking for a rug exactly like that. Do you mind sharing where you found it? I’m only finding really expensive, albeit gorgeous, ones.

    Hi there, love that effect! I want to do the same with a floor lamp… can you let me know if you had to prime it first? Thanks!

  4. Host – Gator understands this, which is why they’re willing to
    offer money saving coupons to their customers. You can expect to experience signal strength up to
    fifteen times greater than typical levels. There are several discerning factors
    that can affect the range and leaving you falling short
    of what is needed to operate yourcomputer efficiently while connected to your router.

  5. In her last game of the season my daughter scored her first goal,
    but just as important, on two occasions she came up on the opposing player about to score and stole the ball, preventing two certain goals (the pee-wee
    leagues play without goalies and don’t keep score). On the
    sole a plate designed for firm, natural surfaces does the trick-if you want to play on the hard ground.
    Because then, the scenario changed thinking about how the organization supplied frames and specific
    mascots players against loose alter.


  1. [...] Ashley Muir Bruhn bakom bloggen Hither & Thither tog en arbetsstol från Ikea och spraymålade benen. Genast känner jag att den här stolen ser ju faktiskt helt okej ut, och bekväm har jag redan kollat att den är. Stolen är heter ”Patrik” och benen har i vanliga fall den där inte alls snygga pulverlackerade ikeagrå färgen. [...]
