My mom found this ugly metal stand at a flea market and thought of me. She was right on for this particular piece of furniture. I immediately had a vision. Below is how I transformed this piece from ugly to retro chic.
1. I started by sanding down the metal.
3. I thought I’d leave it plain but then got inspiration from my new phone cover. I found some painters tape and created chevon stripes. Once taped off I used Krylon black glossy paint to spray the exposed areas. It was a little difficult only having two hands as I had to take a piece of cardboard and move it along the edge of the table top in order to not have any spray paint get onto the sides of the table.
4. I waited half a day before peeling of the tape to see the results. It’s not perfect but then again neither am I. Bottom line- it came out pretty cool. (to avoid any jagged edges on the stripes don’t rip the tape like I did, lesson learned- use actual scissors) Yeah I know duh!!!
