Upcycle a table using leftover paints
• YOU’LL NEED: A pencil, a ruler, blue painter’s tape, a selection of paints, foam rollers and clear varnish.
• HOW TO: DRAW a selection of stripes of varying widths onto the tabletop using a pencil and ruler. MARK OFF the stripes using blue painter’s tape. Use a ruler to press the tape down flush with the table to prevent the paint from bleeding after painting. PAINT stripes using a small roller. Allow to dry. Repeat process with other rollers. Once dry, remove painter’s tape and seal tabletop with clear varnish.
