Black and White Striped Table

So I had an itch. I needed wanted to paint something reallll  bad! Do you ever get that way? I really didn’t need anymore furniture, so I thought I would re-do one of the pieces I already had. The kitchen table needed to go first! I painted it white over a year age (which I have loved), however my son unfortunately got the best of it. square kitchen table
So I decided to make a change…
how to paint a table
Do ANY of you remember my first kitchen table makeover? Probably not. I think a year ago there was only about 50 people reading this blog. I originally found this table on craigslist for $60 bucks! With the chairs! I thought that was an awesome deal.. because this is a real sturdy table. In this picture I didn’t have the leaf in, it’s in now. I love the square look.image
I did love the plain white and black… but I’m LOVING the stripes so much better. Okay and please notice the chandelier. I’ve hated it for the past year and FINALLY did something about it!
I also have to say I think my photography has gotten A LOT better. That picture is horrible. lol.
My table was definitely in dire need of a makeover! Between paint, crayons, spaghetti stains, fork marks… you name it, it was trashed! Okay maybe not trashed but it definitely wasn’t holding up well. I did things a little different this time… and I’m hoping it will withstand Carson’s destruction.
I’ve always been a black and white kind of girl… it just looks so classy! I knew I wanted to keep the table black and white, I just wanted the black  to be a little more dominant. I also knew I wanted some type of design on top. I was thinking of doing a chevron pattern at first, but then I just decided to stick with the classic stripes. I’m glad I did.
distressing furniture
I LOVE how it turned out. At first I thought I went a little over board on the distressing, but I think it’s perfect! If Carson drags his fork on the table… all the better! ;)
I also gave my candle a little makeover. What do you think?
chandelier makeover
Ah  the Chandelier looks SO much better!! A little trim goes  a LONG way! Thank you Jo-Ann’s 50% off coupons! Here is the tutorial for the cord cover.

I also made this cord cover that took seriously five minutes. Why didn’t I do this sooner?

So there you have it… my Black and White Striped Table.
kitchen makeover ideas
I think it looks awesome in our kitchen. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since our kitchen makeover. Crazy how time flies!
So what do you think?
I think I’m in LOVE.
Stay tuned to for more details on this project. I’ll fill you in on all the how-to’s. :)
Happy Friday!

    So cute. I think the white knobs really make it pop. Great work!

  53. Colleen @ MuralMaker&More Reply

    Very, very cool. I like the stripes better than chevron too. But, hey, the next time you get an itch to paint, grab a canvas, or piece of paper, and drop by and try out one of my tutes. I seriously need some testers! 'Course, guess I could actually invite people to try them out . . . duh!

    Have a great weekend!

  54. Star Graf Design Reply

    I love it. Can't go wrong with black and white in or near the kitchen.


  55. Awesome! I just showed it to my husband who is totally in favor of doing this to our own table, yay!

  56. what a classy look love it

  57. It turned out awesome! I am featuring it tomorrow at Creations by Kara. :)

  58. The stripes really add to it. Looks great. Nice job.

  59. What an awesome idea! I would never ever have thought of doing stripes on a table like that, but it turned out fantastic! Love the chandelier too!

  60. I have that table, and let me tell you $50 for it was a GREAT deal. The finish on the top of ours is starting to wear- who knew Clorox wipes could be a problem?!
    I will definitely think about doing some stripes!

    This is absolutely fabulous! I love black and white, too. :)

  66. Hey girl! Love it! Your kitchen is to die for! Big thumbs up over here ;o)

    So are you going to CE or Spark? I would love to room with you! CE would have been tons funner if you’d crashed in the closet with me more! lol that sounds bad. ANYWAYS…..

    happy crafting!

  67. The stripes are fabulous! Classic – you cannot go wrong. What a great “punch” to the room. Pretty chandelier too.

  68. Oh my stars, I love it – have always adored the crisp contrast of black and white stripes – it can be sophisticated or it can be wacky. And on a table, in that setting, it’s the coolest thing I have ever seen!!!

  69. Now you just need to come to my house and re-vamp my furniture. Your table is so fun!! You did such an awesome job with the distressing.


  71. Hi!
    I don’t know when you did your table and chandelier, but I do love it so much!!! Just have to tell you, I was in a shop last week and saw a table and chairs done similar and they wanted $499 for the table and 4 chairs. So, doing it yourself sure saves a lot of money. Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you have thought about changing your curtains. I would love to see black & white toille in there. Hint: You can order off ebay cheap cheap cheap or you can make them yourself if you sew. Love your work!!

  72. so can you tell me how exactly you made the cord covers on you light ive been thinking about making these but trying to find easiest way thanks jenny

  73. Hi I just joined your blog and fell in love with your kitchen and dining room table makeover. I just purchased a home this August and I’m looking to paint my dining room table black. My table is identical to yours minus the bench and it is in dire need of a makeover. I  want to paint the table and chairs black and I was wondering if you have a tutorial for your dining room table makeover? This will be my first project and I am excited to start.
