DIY: DINING TABLE MAKEOVER WITH MARBLE DC-FIX

I've had this massive need to do little changes around this apartment for these last few months. I don't know if it's because the Spring is just around the corner or is it because I've been on a complete nesting mood during the last weeks of the pregnancy. Also, my hubby has done his part helping me out with my ideas and I'm so thankful for that. Or well, maybe he was afraid that I'd throw a pizza at him if he didn't want to help? Haha, just kidding. 


We have had our dining table for three years now. It was something we bought when we moved from our 30 square meter apartment to a bigger apartment where we were able to actually fit a dining table. Now, when there will be more people over the dining table at some point, we've become to a realisation that some day - we're going to need to buy a bigger one. So far, this has been perfect for our purposes. If you want to see how this table looked before we did this little makeover to it - click here.  

This actually is not the first time I've used dc-fix to make some changes in our apartment. In 2015, I dc-fixed our kitchen and bathroom. We lived in that apartment for over a year and because of stuff that was happening in my life at that moment when I started the bathroom project I never actually finished it. Which is kind of weird, I usually finish all the projects that I start. Anyhow, I love how dc-fix is so easy to use and it brings a whole different look to places where it's used. It's also very cheap, so that's a huge plus too. 


So, returning back to this dining table. I was a bit concerned to use marble dc-fix for the very first time. I've recently fallen in love with marble - I know, three years late from the boom as always - and for me, the hardest decision at this was to choose between these two shades of marble. I really liked the darker one but then again I felt it would look a bit too edgy for a dining table so we ended up choosing the lighter one. I'm really happy that we chose the lighter one, it looks so much better, to be honest.  


I'm so happy with the change. Okay yeah, that's only a freaking 40€ Ikea dining table but it feels like it's completely different. Literally feels like we have bought a new dining table, which is great. New dining table for a little bit over 10€ - not bad at all haha! 

By the way, you should definitely check out Dora's blog for more dc-fix inspiration. She was the reason I got interested in dc-fixing and I really got inspired by her 20€ kitchen renovation which by the way was pretty awesome. Also, she renovated their dining table also which might have been back of my mind since then, so let's all thank her for this little inspiration! 

Have you ever dc-fixed anything?

  6. This is such a fantastic way of updating your furniture without having the huge expense of buying new. Although I like the dark marble I agree that it might have been to edgy for a dining table. Love this post :)
