peanuts

I was feeling pretty satisfied with how my latest project turned out.  I took a beat up side table and transformed it into a burst of whimsy.  I couldn’t help but smile at the cheerful color combo.

Until my dad came by and said it reminded him of Charlie Brown’s shirt.

All I heard from him was wah-wah-wah-wahwah-wah.

Good grief Charlie Brown.  Maybe he’s right.

Well here is the before picture of the unintentionally inspired by Peanuts side table.  I picked it up a few weeks ago.

The wood finish was worn but look at the great curvy detail.  It just needed a light sanding followed by a coat of primer.

Then I painted 2 coats of yellow.  After they dried, I taped what I intended to be a wide chevron pattern…not Charlie Brown’s shirt.

I filled in between the tape with 2 coats of white.  And finally sealed the table with a paste wax.

She’s a curvier gal.

With great legs.

I’m thinking this would be fab as a bedside table in a little girl’s room…Peanuts themed or otherwise.

  1. Very cute, and if it’s new name is Charlie Brown, all the better…he’s my FAVE character on Peanuts (no kidding)

    Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I think your table is so cute and fun! I have one almost exactly like it, but in pink and white, that I painted as a bedside table for my daughter’s room.

  3. This is too funny, I just bought several yards of yellow/white chevron for a tablecloth! I love the pattern. Awesome paint job :-)
