Grain Sack Striped Laundry Folding Table

How I painted the perfect grain sack stripes.

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


It was just the right size for a folding table in my laundry room.


I knew all it needed was a little paint and a few stripes.

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 (affiliate link) to tape off my grain sack stripes and then painted in the spaces with an uneven shading so the stripes would come out with a distressed look.

This 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, not too glamorous but very functional!
