This project started because I had a free sample of Valspar paint, thanks to an in-magazine coupon. Of course Pantone’s paint colors are beautiful. So i picked a random favorite, June Bug, and brought it home. I painted over my red stump. And made another for a friend. Then I saw the Dwell Studio Chevron coffee table and knew how I’d finish up this color. I flipped the coffee table top over and painted it white. Measuring wasn’t my favorite part, especially because I didn’t want to draw lines all over my table. Instead, I drew lines on small pieces of tape and worked from there.
With my three-inch stripes marked off, I filled in with masking tape and rolled on June Bug.
Three coats later (why I try to buy paint and primer in one) I peeled off the tape to reveal this:
Perfectly crisp lines (thanks Frog Tape!) and a fun pattern.
And I can still flip the top for the plain mint top. Best of both worlds.
For now, I’m liking the bold design and deep color. Something to wake up the family room.
What do you think of the large pattern? Do you start projects because you get something free? Or just have to paint and repaint for a quick, new look?
