Summer is the perfect excuse to make bright and fun patterned pieces for the home and outdoor living - don't you think? I love spending as much time outside on our patio as I can, but we are currently lacking in the furniture department right now. I decided to make a fun outdoor side table with a citrus top to add a splash of color and a whole lot of fun to our patio space!

Instructions

1. Sand your table top and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Using painters tape, create your unique citrus design.

2. Begin painting your table top any color, depending on your citrus! I went with a fun grapefruit design because I am currently loving pink!

3. Allow paint to dry completely in between coats. When dry, remove tape carefully. Spray with clear acrylic spray for wood protection.

This instantly adds the color I needed and a functional piece for our outdoor space. It's perfect for holding my magazines and cool drinks, so I can happily enjoy the quiet and beautiful weather while the kids are busy napping inside! I would so much rather create one-of-a-kind pieces for my spaces, instead of going out and buying something generic. It truly adds a unique and perfect design to meet my needs!  What do you think about this fun citrus trend on furniture?
