Zebra Table Attempt

Okay, so I love these cheap screw-on-leg tables.  Back in the day, we covered them in burgundy table clothes with a ruffle around the bottom, then maybe a Lacey thing, then the glass, and thennnnn some fancy figurines and dried flower bouquets....  I'm embarrassed to say I am describing what sat in my living room for way too long!  But these babies are FUN to paint!  They soak up the paint INSTANTLY and there is no need for sanding or Wil Bond, or any other such extras! 

This is what I did on one over my weekend.  It's supposed to be zebra stripe.  But.... I asked the Hubby if I succeeded in making it look like those beautiful animal stripes and he shrugged his shoulders and said "not really...."  Hmph.  Guess I'll have to work on that.  I'm really wanting a zebra stripe stencil.  I hate free handing, mostly cuz I STINK at it.  And there's the proof!  (Even though I still think it turned out lookin' kinda cool!)

If you've been a long time followerer, you'll know I've used that "before" pic  few times!  Here are some other paint projects I've done with this table: The Halloween Spider Table, The Flower Bordered Table, The Cat Table
Today I'm linked up at a fun new blog I found:

  4. I thought "Zebra" when I saw the paint job too! Hubby just needs a hug :) He'll see better after a hug, trust me.
