DIY Colorful Side Table

With the fresh white walls in our newly painted basement, I needed just a little more color to help pull in our geometric painted accent wall! I decided to play with a variety of bright and happy colors using DecoArt’s new Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint. I had so much fun designing this fun colorful side table and it just so happens to be SUPER easy too!

I love the burst of color this table brings to the space! It’s a great addition to our family room and is both playful and modern! I decided to pay extra attention to the legs and bring in a little  more detail by creating trendy triangular shapes that tie in some of our home decor. The options are really endless for this piece – wouldn’t it be great as a coffee table or even bedside table!?
