So, I have had this little IKEA side table for awhile now. I picked it up for free about a year ago. It was originally the brown finish but then I spray painted it yellow- it was okay but I didn't love it. But it was free and is an easy piece to change-up.
I came across this post on The Nester awhile ago who linked back to Centsational Girl's post here about her herringbone pillow. I love the herringbone pattern and wanted to try it on something, so I gave it a whirl yesterday.
I modified her instructions though, since I wasn't using fabric paint,
or a pillow, or stencil tape.... I basically just used what I had on
hand in the house= Chalk Paint & Masking tape (would recommend
painter's tape instead but mine looked too thick).
Start out by taping it off. Eyeball it- I am not concerned with perfection.
Here is what it looked like before I painted it:
And here it is, in its old home, revitalized and ready for admirers.
What do you think? An improvement?
