It was the blue paint that got my attention first.

I had to use it! It was so pretty. I had originally bought it for a different project that ended up fizzing out. The rest of the paint was in my apartment from past tenets. Our landlords encourage us to paint. Believe it or not, someone painted our main bathroom that red color. It’s definitely striking…  And I’m not sure where “mandrain yellow” was in this place. Case in point: I spent no extra money on the paint. There was even primer here.

I picked up the cute little night stand at the thrift store for $6

It had personality but was just a little drab.

First, I put one coat of white primer on all surfaces. I used a mini paint roller and a small pointy tip painting sponge.

Then two coats of yellow paint. I let a full 24 hours of drying time between all coats.

I drew out my lines using an l square and a ruler.

Then I taped off the color I wanted first, blue, and sponge painted the section. Careful to not exceed the tape lines.

Remove the tape slowly and carefully when you are done applying the paint. Do not let the paint dry and then pull up the tape. Rip city.  I had a few spots where it pulled up my paint. I went back and fixed these spots carefully at the end.

After 24 hours I taped off and painted the red stripe.

I sprayed several coats of clear lacquer over the entire piece.

This thing has so much personality now! I am so excited at how neat it turned out.
