DIY Side Table with Paint Chips

I’m always up for a little DIY project, so when given the task to find cute side tables for a friend, I wanted to add a fun twist to create a cute DIY side table. At first I considered painting a gradient stripe on the drawer, but the thought of taping it off, buying all the paint, and actually painting the dresser wasn’t looking very promising. I happened to be at Lowes this past weekend picking up some spray paint (for a different project) and found myself admiring the paint chip color wall. Then it hit me—project!

I grabbed some of my favorite pink tones; you can ask the store if they have any out-of-date paint chip cards if you plan to take more than just a few for a project. Then I made a quick stop at the craft store to purchase one of those large shape paper punches (in the scrapbook section of the store).

Paint Chip Art Project

It’s seriously the easiest project ever! I punched out my favorite shades of pink (no skills necessary, just stick in the color cards and push), and then I used the infamous Mod Podge glue to apply my little squares.

You can imagine the possibilities, right? I find myself wondering how many of these little squares I’d need to cover an entire wall! So here’s the finished project. I purchased the table at Target, gave it a quick coat of white spray paint, and added that pop of color with my fancy paint swatch squares!

I love the table with the bedding...also curious as to its origin?

The table is from Target. I saw it on clearance at my store recently. Katy spray painted it white and decorated it. The one I saw in the store was a dark espresso color.
