& A Simple DIY

I did a quick K-Mart hack of a side table over the weekend, as I wanted an affordable side table to add to our home decor.

I was really inspired by the, ‘KMart Hacks’ Facebook page, so headed to KMart and bought the 2 tone drawer for $35;

I loved everything else about this side table, so wanted to keep it simple. I decided to add 3 gold geometric lines to break it up a little bit.

This was a flat pack, so I put it all together, and taped it with painter’s tape to create my lines. I made sure I pressed the side of the tape really hard to ensure the paint wouldn’t seep through.

Before I added the gold, I put 1 coat of sealer over where I was going to paint, as the top of the table had a plastic finish, so the paint would’ve peeled off.

Once the sealer had dried, I put 2 coats of standard gold craft paint over the top, and once that had dried, peeled the tape off.

This was such a simple DIY hack that it only took about 20 minutes of actual work, and the rest was just drying time in between coats!
