Geometric Nesting Tables

DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.comWe're so excited to share this project with you today! Nesting tables are so cute and perfect for smaller spaces, because you can use them individually when guests come over and then neatly tuck them away the rest of the time! We found some super plain, light wood tables at a flea market that would be perfect for a little sprucing up. ;) When we were dreaming up ideas for ways to style the tables, we knew we wanted one to incorporate a big, black and white photo for one of the tables, so it was another great fit with our Canon USA collaboration!DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com Step 1Step 1: Let's start with the middle table. You need an extra large photo. We used the Canon PRO-100 (so, so good for B&W photos) and their 13x19 semi-gloss photo paper.DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com Step 5Step 2: Prime and paint the middle table white. Use ModPodge to adhere the photo to the top of the table. Cut out paper confetti dots and arrange them on your photo. Use ModPodge to glue the paper dots to the photo. Use painter’s tape to tape off the bottom of the table legs and paint the legs.DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com Step 2DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com Step 2Steps 3 + 4: For the biggest table, prime and paint the table white. Make an off-center dot on your tabletop with a pencil (this will be the spot where all your lines originate from). From this dot, use a ruler and a pencil to divide your table into twelve segments. Using painter’s tape, tape off each section and use a different colors of paint to paint each segment. Tape off the bottom third of each leg with painter’s tape, and paint the legs for a “dipped” effect.DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com Step 4Step 5: For the smallest table, prime and paint the table white. Use a pencil and a ruler to make three rows of interlocking triangles. Fill in the triangles randomly with your paint color choices. Use painter’s tape to tape off the bottom of the table legs and paint the legs.DIY Geometric Nesting Tables via abeautifulmess.com 6To complete the project, use a clear art sealer spray to put a finishing protective coat on your tables.
