Stripped Coffee Table

Why should furniture be boring and unloved.

I mean it is in a home, a safe and unique space put together just for you and the family to be cosy and safe.

Well this table is what Im talking about.

He is dressed in blue. And lightly distressed. The table top is the fun part. So easy to create. All you need is painters tape, a very long ruler, paint of your choice and wood stain.

Step 1: Measure out equal strips and mark with a pencil. I just used a long leveler to do this.

Step 2: Tape the outside of the area you want to paint. So the tape sits in the staining area.

Step 3: Paint with the color of your choice. I used wheatfield white. Two coats is more then enough.

Step 4: Remove tape and stain the remaining strips. Dont worry about getting stain on the painted strips as this gives a shabby chic look.

Step 5: Varnish

Thank you for viewing my blog. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and passionate about creating a fabulous space to be inspired by everyday. Strong believer in anything is possible if you keep tremendously interested in it and love and believe in yourself.... I made my blog as a way of helping others get inspired and also be inspired by others creations. I love finding old, boring pieces of furniture and giving it back its former glory.... to tell its story once again. My style is more of boho chic and also love French country. I love crafting. Finding old picture frames and giving it a new purpose and painting anything with detailing and character. Please feel free to ask any questions and I look forward to this world of blogging If you would like to connect me via email connect davina_foon@yahoo.co.nz
