Chevron Painted Side Table

Paint a Chevron Side Table with Mom 4 RealThis past week, I decided to whip out one of my favorite new products that I brought back from Haven, and got to work on this chevron painted side table.  This really was the fastest and easiest table I have ever painted, and I can’t wait to show you how I did it!

I started with this little blue side table that used to live in my son’s bathroom.  He got a new shelf, and this little table has been living in our garage until I could find a new home for it.  It was just too little and cute to get rid of.

I decided to start by painting it white.  I would normally hand paint any furniture I was working on, but since this table was so small, I opted for spray paint.  I used Valspar’s outdoor spray paint in white because that is what I had on hand.

Shape Tape and Sonora Rose PaintFor the chevron pattern, I used a new product by FROGTAPE, Shape Tape, and the paint I used was a sample I bought on clearance at Lowe’s, Valspar’s Sonora Rose.

 I simply smoothed on strips of the chevron Shape Tape leaving about an inch and a half in between each row.

Then I painted right over the tape, and around the top edge and the edge of the lower shelf.
