A geometric makeover

6 Nov

Earlier in the year I brought back some things from my mums place, you might remember this post. One of the things that I brought back, with the intentions of gussying it up.image

Well, it sat in the garage for 7 months, until last weekend, when I pulled it out and gave it the make over it deserved.

This is how it originally looked

My grandfather made this table, I think it was made for me as a child and was originally green. My mum painted it red and covered the top with denim contact for my brother. Now after 10 years in storage it was time to give it a new lease of life for my Minimen.

It is destined for life in the playroom so to match the colour scheme in there I painted it bright, sunny yellow after I had removed the contact and sanded it back.

To give it a a bit of spunk I taped some stripes randomly on the legs and painted them with the blue that is on the walls in the play room

I found a cute geometric stencil and using the same blue I applied the design. I love geometric patterns, they are always fresh and modern, and put a smile on my face,

So this is the finished product, I think I will probably put a clear gloss coat of varnish on it to protect the stenciling.

I love how it turned out, although the stenciling could be neater. It is going to fit so perfectly in the play room. I also love that I am able to give the Minimen something that was mine as a child.
