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!

Paint a Chevron Side Table Before

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.

Paint a Chevron Side Table Step 1

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.

    Holy smokes! Just what I’ve been waiting for (simply because I’m too lazy to do it the hard way)! LOVE how this turned out! That red pop of color is going to look fantastic no matter where you put it! Where’d you find the tape, Jess?

    First off, that table is awesome! But, my mouth literally dropped open when I realized you were using CHEVRON tape. I did not know this existed. Must…go…buy………immediately! Where did you find it? Menards? {please tell me it is at Menards….we are a little limited here in rural Wisconsin}
