Side Stripes

After gluing this little side table… I was frustrated because the slats of wood on the bottom shelf weren’t lining up right and it was noticeable that it was not one solid piece of wood.  Then I thought I could use that to my advantage and paint each piece a different color.
 Yippee!  Problem solved!

I painted the entire table white and then I placed masking tape along the edge of each slat creating a perfect straight edge to paint against. 

I used only colors I already had… which most of all are the wall colors of my house. 

The end result is a super cute striped side table that could go in literally any room of my house!
