Scotch Blue Painting Party with a Striped Table and Giveaway!

Welcome to the ScotchBlue™ Painting Party! A group of fantastic DIY bloggers, including myself, all completed projects with the help of ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector. Now we’re giving you the chance to gather inspiration, have fun, and win prizes! If you’d like to start at the beginning of the party and see more tutorials, head to Brittany’s blog: Pretty Handy Girl .

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?

Now it's YOUR turn to gather inspiration, have fun, and win some prizes!

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.

I would love to try the chevron pattern on a dresser I have. Your table turned out so cute!

This turned out fantastic!! Black and white stripe is always a winner for me!! I like it better with no keyhole piece, too.
Well done!!

What an awesome find! The table looks great with the stripes you painted. I'd like to try that on an old dresser we have.

I would love to use the tape to make a chevron rug for our kitchen. I've seen so many cute ones lately!

P.S. I love the keyhole, it adds even more character to the table!

Beautiful table! I would have never thought to makeover an old sewing table and reuse it for something else. Nice job!

I would love for you to stop by and link up your project for Functional Friday.

Spunky Junky said...

I love the table! What a complete transformation!


McKelle said...

I just redid a sewing machine table a few weeks ago. I also got a steal of a deal at $7! I think yours turned out fantastic!

Heather at Happy Chippy Junk said...

I would use it on every project I have lined up...I hear it is FAB!!

Andrea said...

Love the black & white! It's my fave and looks terrific on the sewing machine table!

And definitely use the keyhole piece!

I'm not usually a fan of painting good wood, but this turned out great. I have a mid-Century record cabinet that needs a face lift so I can get it out of hiding. Stripes, chevrons, or plaids would be do-able with this tape. Thanks for letting us play along.

Unknown said...

PS: I don't Tweet, but I did go to the Scotch Blue FB page and LIKE them. I also posted the giveaway on my FB page, hoping one of my crafty friends will let me help them re-do one of their sewing cabinets.

Michelle @ Ten June said...

How cute! I love the black and white stripes- so chic and fun : ) Great job! xo

Miss Char said...

I'm in love with this piece, truly in love with it. I could think of several places it would look perfect in most any more. Thank you for sharing and the tip on the tape.

Crazy Wonderful said...
