Materials Needed

  • paint (one color per table)
  • paintbrush
  • delicate-surface painter’s tape
  • white paint for stripes

Step 1

Paint each table a different color, and let dry.

Step 2

Use delicate-surface painter’s tape to tape off a 2 1/2-inch-wide stripe down the center of the table and a 1-inch-wide stripe on each side of it. Fill in the stripes with at least two coats of white paint. Remove the tape while the paint is still slightly wet. Let dry.
