Picnic and outdoor dining tables are so functional, but can be so… plain. Why not dress up your existing spread with a painted table runner down the center?
To be fair, painting projects always scare me a bit. They seem so… permanent! But with a bit of patience, a great plan and a steady hand, you can transform any Plain Jane piece of furniture into an instant statement maker. Take this outdoor dining room table from Planet Maison for example. How perfectly Southwestern-inspired is this beauty, created with just a few cans of paint over the center two strips of wood?
By keeping the pattern geometric with straight angles and hard lines, you don’t have to be an expert at freehand painting to pull off the look. Simply apply painter’s tape on a diagonal to create arrows, triangles, stripes – the sky’s the limit!
I love how fresh and personality-filled this piece is, and would have never guessed it was just a simple, everyday table before the makeover. Proof that a can of paint can transform anything!
