I picked this former sewing table up last weekend for $5.99. It had already been gutted! Score! Most of these sewing tables I see at thrift shops have such great lines!! The size of this table is perfect for an entry table.
I sanded it down, primed it with black primer (another genius product) and sprayed it Rustoleum Canyon Black in satin. Then the fun began. I measured off stripes starting at the middle of the table and working out. Each one is 3 inches wide (2 pieces of tape).
I used BM Linen White with a roller over the tape...I did 3 coats because I needed to cover the black. I was really excited to take the tape off and when I did...yowza! PERFECT stripes! Honestly, I'd used other painters tape before, and always got bleeding underneath. Not with Scotch Blue edge-lock paint protector tape!
There was one side of one stripe that bled a little, but I think it was user error.
The next day, I distressed a bit and then glazed...and I love her now!
With or without the key hole piece?

ScotchBlue Brand reached out to me to participate in the ScotchBlue Painting Party to celebrate the launch of their new ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector. My post represents my honest experience with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape. I am not being paid for my answers, but I did receive ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to assist in completion.
Linking to these fabulous parties!
