Painting waves on glass coffee tables
Painted furniture has become very popular in recent years, and painting waves on a glass coffee table is no exception. With the rise of trends like ‘Anthropology-style’ and boho-chic furniture, designing a unique piece of furniture for your living space has become easier than ever.
Before you start painting, you’ll need a few supplies:
- Glass table – Choose a glass table with an interesting shape or simple design.
- Paint – Using glass paint, you can create any color of waves you want.
- Paint brushes – Make sure you have a good selection of paint brushes of different sizes and shapes.
- Tape – Use masking or painter’s tape to create off-white details or separate colors.
Creating the Design
The key to great waves is to mix up the colors and sizes of them. Try doing a combination of thin and thick lines, with smaller waves in the background and larger waves in the foreground. To create a smooth transition between colors and shades, it helps to blend them by wetting the brush and then tapping the colors together.
Painting the Waves
The most important thing to remember when painting waves is to make sure you have a steady and clean brush stroke. When painting the thin lines, try to go with the flow of the waves instead of painting straight up and down. If you’re having trouble, use tape to divide the table into sections, then start with a simple white line and blend colors as you go.
Once the base colors are in place and the waves are painted, you can go in and add details. Use tape to create patterns (like stripes or chevrons) or use white paint to make the waves stand out. You can also use tape to add other colors, like off-white, to give the waves an extra pop. Once you’re finished, simply peel off the tape and enjoy your new glass coffee table!
Painted furniture is a fun and creative way to update your living space, and painting waves on a glass coffee table is no exception. You can create any design you want with a few simple supplies and a steady hand. So go ahead and create some beautiful waves on your next glass coffee table!
