Grain Sack Striped Laundry Folding Table

I sure didn't pass up this laminate table on the side of the road...


I knew all it needed was a little paint and a few stripes.
It was just the right size for a folding table in my laundry room...


First I gave the pedestal legs a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in 
Duck Egg, then painted the top Bright White. 


I love that this paint sticks to laminate with no sanding or prep.

When the paint dried, I gave the table top a clear coat of wax.

I used Frog Tape to tape off my grain sack stripes and 
painted in the spaces with an uneven shading so the stripes would come out with a distressed look...


I've gotta say... Frog Tape is fabulous... 
not a speck of paint leaked under the tape!


When the stripes were dry, I ran fine sandpaper over them for more distressing and then I re-waxed the table.


This is my basement laundry room.


And this... 
is my "new" grain sack striped folding table.
