Well, my mom brought home this sad looking side table. Isn't it so sad:( I wasn't sure how to make it pretty but I knew it could have a new life. The knobs on it were already so cute and I loved the texture of the wicker drawers. After sitting it in the garage for a month while I
procrastinated dreamed up a fun idea, this is what I came up with.
I started by taking out the drawers and painting my base coat (after primer of course). I started with an Ivory for my base.
Next, I taped off some stripes. It was really easy, and lets be honest, I didn't measure so they aren't perfect.
Now this step is the most important part when painting stripes, on furniture, walls, wherever. Paint over the tape with your base coat. This seals any openings the tape may have so your next color doesn't leak through and you get perfectly perfect stripes!
I sprayed the entire thing in aqua including the drawer faces. Then you just pull off the tape, preferably before the paint drys.
I also sanded the edges a bit to give it a shabby look and that was it! Viola, a fun little stripy number that would look so cute in a kid's room.
And here it is in my shop:
Have a very happy day!
