French Grain Sack Striped Nesting Tables


I wanted to do something a bit different with these nesting tables and since I've been crushing on grain sack stripes lately ....


Before ...


After ...


I used 3 coats of DIY white chalk paint.


Then gave the tops a light sand and taped off my stripes.


I used a turquoise coloured paint to fill in my grain sack stripes.


And sanded again, doing the legs as well and distressing the edges.


Then I gave the tables 3 coats of clear varnish.


I love the way they turned out, don't you?

    1. Hi Joy. No the colours stayed the same. Just a bit shiner. :) Julie

  3. I've always had a thing for nesting tables. They're so practical when you need an extra little table to hold a cup of coffee or a drink, and they're just so cute nesting together. I love your fresh green grain sack stripes that update your little tables perfectly.
