INTO STRIPES!!! You all know from my posts that I love me some animal print on my furniture. However, I am also loving all the other designs on furniture.
and, OMG I AM IN LOVE, this
Since I have already done my chevrons for downstairs, hello pallet art. And since I am too chicken to try the Marilyn Monroe chair, I decided to try the stripes.
My buddy Angie gave me this end table to do something with.
Nice bones, kind of boring - just what I was in the mood for. Seeing as I STILL have a gallon of blue oops paint left, naturally this puppy was going to get a few coats of it. But, since the wood was in good condition, I decided to do my "fake antique" look and just swipe the brush until there was no more paint left. I love this technique because it lets the undercolour shine thru and I don't have to sand down any parts of the piece afterwards.
She, because anything this purdy has to be a she, looks pretty good, but she needed something. STRIPES!
So easy to do. I didn't even measure, I just eyed the top and put tape down and got some wonderful chocolate brown paint.
I love how it turned out. So do a lot of my friends. However, a lot don't like the stripe. Isn't it amazing how everybody has different tastes? Well, even if it is not to everybody's liking, at least they can't say I am boring, right?
