So my sister gave me this cheerful little yellow table. I think she got it at a consignment sale, but decided it was taking up more room than it was worth. So I delightedly took it off her hands.
It was originally solid yellow. The paint job was deceptively easy to do. I had the masking tape and leftover white paint from our baby’s changing table and rocking chair on hand.
I made a couple quick charts to hopefully help you get what I’m talking about. So to create these stripes I started by drawing a light pencil dot in the very center of the table. I wouldn’t just eyeball it; I would measure. Then I created a grid pattern by spacing several more dots about 5 inches apart from each other. Like so:
Then connect the dots with masking tape making a zig zag. Like so:
Then, just fill in every other stripe. Keeping in mind that what is covered will be yellow and what is yellow will be white:
I know the colors all wonky. I took this at night in my garage. But you get the idea. Oh, and I taped up the sides of the table too. The legs detached thank goodness.
Paint. Paint. Paint. Un-tape. Enjoy.
Oh, and how do you like them ‘shrooms? I sculpted those for a little project I have coming up. But for now they look pretty cute just chillin’ on the table.
