Black and Gray Striped Table


My friend sold me this table for a really good price, and I was super excited to fix it up.  I was also a little nervous about painting it since I've never done a kitchen table before.

BEFORE



I couldn't figure out what to do with it, so I went to Pinterest for inspiration, and found this adorable striped round table.  I just love the color of the stripes with the pop of turquoise.  She gives an awesome tutorial here on how she painted her table.



I was so excited to try it out!

The first thing I did was sand the entire surface with an electric sander. 


I then primed the entire thing with white Rustoleum primer spray paint.  Normally I use valspar primer, but since it's a table and it gets a little more wear, I thought the Rustoleum would hold up and have better coverage.  After priming I gave it a light sand again just to smooth it out a bit.



I painted the entire surface gray, and the base turquoise. After letting the paint dry for about 2 hours,  I  measured and marked every 6 inches.


I put masking tape down on my markings


I then painted 2 layers of black paint between my pieces of tape.


After taking the tape off, this is how it turned out!
I added 3 coat of polycrylic just to make sure it was well protected. ( Make sure to sand lightly between each coat)


I painted the chairs turquoise with gray seats.



This is the end result! I think I have a new obsession with stripes.  Thanks Pinterest for the great idea!
