    Step 0 Example
  2. Use the painter's tape to make stripes on one half of the nightstand. Mark the bottom of the front right leg of the stand with tape also.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint over the taped sections with Charcoal. After one application has dried, add a second layer of paint. When the paint is dried, carefully peel off the tape. Use a smaller brush to correct any strays.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint the remainder of the stand with Turquoise. Make curved lines to connect the Turquoise “paint spill” to the rigid stripes on half the stand. Let the first layer dry and then add a second application of color.
