{diy} confetti dot top + gold dipped feet table

Well, that was a mouthful of a title.  Over the last week, I’ve been sprucing up my front porch.  One of the projects was to resurrect this roadside rescue.  This old kid’s table used to live in our family room until it got banished to the basement when I found its replacement.  It desperately needed some love. 



Nothing some paint and duct tape couldn’t fix!  With a fresh coat of white paint, some gold confetti dots on top and gold dipped feet, I’ve fallen in love with this table!


I used my gold Sharpie paint pen to dress her up with the confetti dot effect.  At first, I was going for bigger spots and well, that was a major fail as you can see.  Yikes.


So then I just started pouncing around with the tip of the paint pen creating a clustered grouping of dots on the outside and lessening towards the middle.


I’ve been loving the dipped look, so she even got some gold shoes.  Instead of paint, I wrapped some gold duct tape around the feet of the table.


I also wrapped the edge of the table with gold duct tape to finish it off.



Sooooo much quicker and easier than paint!!  Gotta love duct tape!  Seriously, what can’t you do with that stuff?




Ain’t she purty?


More to come…I’ve got a few more projects to finish up.  Then we can do a full before and after, cause we all love before and afters, right?!!

Be back soon…

  1. That is SO cute, Kim! I've done a couple Sharpie projects, but would have never thought to use that glam duct tape! :) Enjoy the long weekend!

  2. What a fantastic makeover! I love that you were able to make it easier with the duct tape and marker. I'm brainstorming for ideas on how to make over a dining table. Yours has definitely inspired me. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hello again! I featured your table in my monthly blog series, Get Your Color On!. Each month I select a color, provide tips on how to decorate with it, and feature other bloggers with their projects that relate to this color.
