Create your own little haven of calm by teaming a comfy seat with a bespoke hand-painted side table.
A bespoke hand-painted table
With summer fast approaching, now is a great time to get ready for outdoor entertaining. This simple and quick-to-make side table can be teamed with a chair or outdoor sofa on your deck or patio. Best of all, you can personalise it to suit your interior scheme by choosing your favourite paint colours.
You will need:
Seal then paint pot and saucer in 2 coats of your desired base colour (we chose Resene ‘Sand’), letting it dry after each.
Step 1 and Step 3
Decorate pot using testpots. To add stripes, mask off a 3cm-wide stripe on either side with masking tape (the stripe needs to be at a slight angle) and paint with a small brush – we used Resene Kalgoorie Sands Repeat at equal intervals around pot; carefully remove tape before paint has completely dried.
If desired, add circles. We drew around 2 lids (9cm and 11cm) with a pencil and carefully painted them in; or paint them freehand for an organic look. We used Resene Moccasin and Resene Florentine Pink.
Leave to dry overnight then place next to your favourite chair as a handy, colourful side table.
