Striped Side Table

Do you remember this table that I refinished??


 I love it so much! But the mint color just wasn't working for me so I decided it needed a new look.

I lightly sanded it and spray painted it white. After it had dried for a day I taped off the top for stripes.

I didn't measure but just put the first piece of tape right down the middle and eyed the others so that they were about the same distance apart.

I then taped of the edges.

With  a dark color like black I wanted to make sure to prevent paint from leaking under the tape. To do this, I lightly painted over the tape seams with the same white paint. This seals the edges. Let it dry then you are ready to paint your stripes!

I did two coats of black paint, letting it dry for about 20 minutes in between.

I let it dry for just a moment then take the tape off.

If there is any mistakes, the paint will still be wet so you can quickly wipe it off with a damp cloth. 

I let it dry for a day then did a clear coat over it to protect it.
I LOVE how it turned out! I feel that white and black are so simple and classy.
