before and after: planter table

i found this little tray table at the thrift store for $5. i love it's little tapered legs and rolling wheels!

after painting it with yellow zig zags, it's now a little planter table and adds the perfect splash of color to our dining room.

i used love natalie's grow print as inspiration, can you tell?  though her shop is temporarily closed, {update! her shop is now open!} you can see all of her watercolor paintings and diy projects on her blog- love, natalie.

i only bought one shade of yellow paint, but mixed up a little batch of it with some added white to make the lighter color.  i first painted the top light yellow, then used this technique of painting chevrons to tape off the design.  after painting the whole piece darker yellow, i removed the tape and finished it off with a top coat.

did you notice my little collection of blue bottles? i got inspired by johnny miller a while back, and have been collection blue and green bottles and jars ever since.  mine needs some work to be anywhere near as beautiful as his, but i think it's pretty catching the afternoon light.
