How to Paint a Book Table

I am so excited to update this little side table that looks like a stack of books that I picked up at my local Hobby Lobby.

I purchased one back in the “brown” decor days….and have had it hidden behind a chair in my family room to hold the entertainment monitors and routers and you know….the eye sore hub of all things electronic that need to be hidden inside a wall!!!

Well I decided to stop hiding it and turn it into something whimsical that I could show off!

How To:

First I removed drawers….painted #1 & #3 with one coat of Caviar and #2 & #4 with one coat of Flea Market Decor Aged Ivory.

Then, I painted entire body of table with Caviar.

Next, I painted the sides of the table that look like pages of the books (#1 &#3 with Mason Dixon Gray and #2 & #4 with Aged Ivory).

Then, I painted stripes using my standard stripe technique on drawer #2 using 2″ painters tape and Caviar. You can watch this on the included video below at the 24:00 minute mark.

Watch my full tutorial of this piece below!

The whimsical book table is now ready to add a punch of personality to any room I choose to display it in! It no longer needs to be hidden behind a chair!
