Well, yes, perhaps yellow chevron is a little happier.
Today, I'm going to share with you how to make this happy table! I left Haven with this amazing Chevron "Shape Tape" by FrogTape. As you know, I LOVE my FrogTape and use it on many furniture projects.
I just knew that the Shape Tape and Annie Sloan's new color, English Yellow, would be a perfect match. I mean Annie's color is like sunshine in a can. I was so happy to pop that can open:
The first step was to paint her in English Yellow. I did a few coats of this. Then I waited 24 hours before applying my Chevron Shape Tape.
This special Shape Tape has a backing on it and you need to attach the top half first and once pressed down you affix the bottom half. Since I wanted my chevron equal distances I used the paper backing as a template.
This Shape Tape was so amazing and easy to use. If I stuck it down and decided I needed to shift it a smidge that was easily done.
I knew I just wanted the chevron on the top of the table so I used regular Delicate Surfaces FrogTape around the edge of the table.
Then I painted the exposed areas (a bit hard to see as the table is yellow too) in Annie Sloan Pure White.
I was so worried to peel back the tape....
But I shouldn't have been. My chevron were so beautiful - clean, straight and no bleed! I was HAPPY and now so is my table:
See those perfectly HAPPY chevrons?!?
I also added a tiny bit of white to the circle at the bottom of the table. Then sealed the whole piece with two coats of clear wax.
