How I Paint My Zebra Furniture

Early in my blogging days I painted this dresser....in the middle of the house. Since then I have had people visiting my blog daily to look at it. I really didn't tell how I painted it....my secrets.
.
A while back I bought Sarah a really nice solid wood TV cabinet for $40 off of Craigslist. Those big TV cabinets are outdated now because so many people have gone to big, huge TV's that don't fit in them anymore.
.
I painted the cabinet in black and white. The white areas are where I put the zebra stripping. I used my magic touch to outline the zebra stripping.......

Yep, a black sharpie to outline the stripes. You really can't go wrong with your design. No two zebra's are alike.
.
After doing the outline you simply paint in between the lines. If you go outside of the lines it is not a big issue. They are just there for a guide.


Jason is not a painter but even he got into the painting action.

So, what do you think? Pretty unique and inexpensive to do.
