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!
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:
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.
For 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!!!
Chevron and coral together…be still my beating heart.
And now I have the perfect place to display my favorite cookbooks!
Thank you so much for having me here every month…this is my definitely my favorite place to visit!
I love your table – and that color is awesome!!
I love her bright, fresh and fun projects! Here are a few of my recent favorites:
DIY bag/coat rack from a headboard!
Beachy frosted Mason jar vase!

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!
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!
GORGEOUS! That color is so pretty and chevron is my fav!!

JESS! I’m LOVING your side table. AND, why have I never heard of shape tape…got to go find some now for a future project! 🙂 Pinning!!
That tape is SO fun!!! Would it work on fabric?
Okay- I just ADORE the new shaped tapes that are out now. NEED to get some. I have a Lowes list growing here- maybe this weekend I can get some things picked up for some more projects.

where did you get the pattern for the chevron design? What measurements did you use? I want to do this on my wall in the basement.

It’s actually a pre cut tape by Frog Tape. I know you can buy it at Lowe’s. It’s amazing, because it sticks right to whatever surface you are painting and keeps paint from getting under the tape. Good luck!
