Follow Along To Do the Project
First off, we used a paint brush and some black latex paint to paint the tops of each of the tables. This black layer is our design layer and we applied two coats of black paint leaving plenty of drying time in between each coat. After the second coat of black paint was applied we let the tables dry overnight to make sure they were nice and dry and ready for taping.
We then measured, marked, and taped off our designs using FrogTape® Delicate Surface tape.
Once the tape designs were completely done and applied, we used a plastic squeegee to smooth down all of the tape lines.
Once the tape was completely smoothed and applied, we used a paint brush to apply three coats of white paint to the entire piece of furniture. White paint can be one of the hardest and most frustrating colors to paint with, so it is better to go with multiple smooth light coats vs thick heavy messy coats!
Once the very last coat of white paint had been applied, we started to gently remove the tape. Don’t use the bandaid method when removing tape! We have found that slow and steady wins the race!
Once all of the tape has been removed it is time to finish the piece! We lightly distressed and sanded all of the edges and then applied a clear furniture wax to seal and protect the finish!
