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I grabbed some of my favorite pink tones; you can ask the store if they have any out-of-date paint chip cards if you plan to take more than just a few for a project.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).
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!
