(Not) Chevron TablesMonday, July 09, 2012
Remember way back to four weeks ago when I bragged about my sweet $2 garage sale find tv tables?
I almost don't either it's been so long.
Oh yeah, those!
Well I finally got around to finishing this project just in time for the Pinterest Challenge! Yay!

And that is how they sat for three weeks. Because apparently I am chevron challenged.
I've already told you about my love of chevron and I so desperately wanted to bring some pattern into my living room. I watched tutorial after tutorial and could NOT get it right. I used painter's tape, my Cricut, a ruler, gridlines...anything I could get my hands on to create some beautiful chevron action on these tables but alas it just wasn't going to work. And as much as I wanted to purchase a stencil, that wasn't in the budget.
So instead, I present my new striped tables!
I absolutely love them!
They were a pretty simple project too since I had already had all the supplies needed to spruce them up on hand from my desk project. In case you're wondering, they have a coat of primer, two coats of white semi-gloss paint, one coat for the stripes, and one coat of poly.
The boyfriend and I tried them last night and they work perfectly, just the right height to enjoy dinner while on the couch.
Today, I pulled one over to make a temporary side table.
