DIY: Dipped Side Table

Issue 46 · The Well-Stocked Home · November 14, 2011

Unfinished furniture with painted accents has been on our design radar for a while; West Elm's latest contribution to the genre is the Dipped Side Table, which is available in white and red. If you prefer another color, consider making your own, using the Gamine Side Table from Urban Outfitters as the starting point. Roughen the surface with sandpaper, mask off the legs with masking tape, and paint with a semi-gloss latex paint (such as Benjamin Moore's Eco-Spec, a no-VOC, 100-percent acrylic latex paint).
