Beachy Stripes

I have had this little OLD table for awhile, I bought it for $2 at a thrift store, and well, it was the next thing in the garage to work on.  I am not sure if it had been a desk that was cut down and missing a drawer or what.
I painted it a sand base color and then taped off some stripes and painted those in fun beachy colors.
I added pieces of cedar fencing to the sides to cover the hole, each one painted a different color.
I sold it within 24 hours of making it, if I hadn't sold it so quickly I wouldn't have been able to part with it.

  4. I'm on a painting break right this minute. Just primed a little table in my driveway and was planning on a beachy blue. Hmmm, maybe I need to consider stripes. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. So cute! I just did a table for my living room today but didn't paint it. Old matched pine door, posts for legs, one husband, and viola'...coffee table! I stained everything to match the door but may eventually paint for a different look in the spring. If I want to dress it up later I may pad and upholster it. Love your table.
