Paint a Chevron Side Table!

Paint a Chevron Side Table with Mom 4 Real

Hey, hey TT&J peeps! It’s Jessica from Mom 4 Real again, and I’m so excited to be back here! Today I want to share this little chevron painted side table. This really was the fastest and easiest table I have ever painted, and I can’t wait to show you how I did it!

Paint a Chevron Side Table Before

I started with this little blue side table that used to live in my son’s bathroom. He got a new shelf, and this little table has been living in our garage until I could find a new home for it. It was just too little and cute to get rid of.

So here’s what I did:

Paint a Chevron Side Table Step 1

I decided to start by painting it white. I would normally hand paint any furniture I was working on, but since this table was so small, I opted for spray paint. I used Valspar’s outdoor spray paint in white because that is what I had on hand.

Shape Tape and Sonora Rose PaintFor the chevron pattern, I used a new product by FROGTAPE, Shape Tape, and the paint I used was a sample I bought on clearance at Lowe’s, Valspar’s Sonora Rose.

I simply smoothed on strips of the chevron Shape Tape leaving about an inch and a half in between each row.

Then I painted right over the tape, and around the top edge and the edge of the lower shelf.

I removed the tape and squealed in delight!!!

  1. I love the chevron table! I recently converted an end table into a little spice cabinet for my kitchen by spray painting it white and adding new hardware, but now I think I will have to add some chevron to it! That Shape Tape looks great!

  2. I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent taping shapes for painting. Knowing about this Frog ShapeTape may be the best thing that has happened to me yet today, second, of course, to my toddler telling me he needed to use the potty. (Just being real. It’s been an off day. 😛 ) This makes me happy happy!
