I recently was given this coffee table. I thought I could do something different with the boards and paint them all different colors. Someone at Witherspoons suggested doing Margaritaville colors, Jimmy Buffet style. Then I remembered a friend of mine has a sign hanging above her kitchen window that says “Just another day in
Paradise”. I put them together and came up with
this. Here is a step by step tutorial.
First I spray painted the bottom blue and then I started painting the stripes different colors. I did have to use a different paint brush for each color, but it went fairly fast.
Next I sanded it and then used stencils for the first part of the sign. I wanted the word “Paraside” to be bigger than the rest of the words. I had to print it in Microsoft word and then I used chalk on the back. I traced the letters with a red pen and picked up the paper. Then, I painted the blue chalk outline black.
I then sealed it with Provential stain. I will give it a coat of wax in the morning, and it will be ready to go. I am not used to painting with such bright colors but I think I will try this again!
