A Table Flip That Will Make You Smile
Who's over boring brown furniture? Who loves color? And who needs a change?
Let me show you an easy, and colorful flip you can do to spice up a space!
Take this guy as an example:
Got dropped off at the local thrift store. We've all seen pieces like this right? Worn and tired. Late 80's-90's stuff. Nothing special. But wood & great bones!
First up put on some Junk Monkey Paint. Whatever color floats your boat! For me, that usually involves a fun color! Teals and reds are a great base color for this project!
No need to prime or sand or strip. Need next, lay down a stencil on top of your painted piece. Got this one on clearance at Hobby Lobby for less than $5! Score!!!!
These are my fav brushes too! Just chip cheap brushes! They leave a great distressed look behind! Pick them up at your local hardware stores! I use them over and over again!
I like to paint the first stencil in black. It's going to create some shadow. Color used is Black Velvet. Seriously usinf black for this steps really makes the table look 3-D!
Dry and then move your stencil. Just shift it a little. Go over the same stencil pattern again with a metallic!
Ready to see how it all pulls together? Here ya go!
Boho...a little moroccan style...just plain fun and colorful!
What color would you paint yours???????? Who's gonna try this???
