Wooden table Sandpaper and cloth Undercoat and paint (in your chosen colours) Assorted paintbrushes Pencil Ruler and eraser Masking tape Utility knife STEP 1 Sand tabletop and legs. Wipe off dust with damp cloth. STEP 2 Paint entire table with undercoat. When dry, paint two coats of colour. We painted the top white and the legs black. Allow to dry completely.
STEP 3 Using a ruler and pencil, mark a zigzag pattern on your tabletop. Choose a zigzag width and length to suit the size and shape of your table.
STEP 4 Use masking tape to mask off those areas that are to be painted black and yellow (or colours of your choice). Use a utility knife to cut tape accurately.
STEP 5 Paint multiple thin coats of the desired colours, allowing adequate time to dry between coats. When last coat is dry, carefully remove masking tape to reveal your zigzag pattern.
