Outdoor Painted Placemat Picnic Table by Stacy Risen may of Not Just a House wife I had been throwing around the idea in my head of fixing up and painting a design on my picnic table. When ScotchBlue™ asked if I wanted to partner with them I knew that this was a perfect project! I painted placemats! And here’s how…Materials Needed:Stain White paint Sand paper Foam brush Ruler or carpenter’s square Paper towels ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Exterior Surfaces

Step-by-Step Instructions1. Start by sanding the table panels really well and then wipe them down with a damp cloth to remove all the sawdust. Using a foam brush, apply the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes before wiping off the excess with paper towels and allow to dry completely following the manufacturer’s instructions on the stain can.

2. To create the painted placemats, apply ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Exterior Surfaces in a rectangle sized to your liking. Tape another rectangle within it approximately one inch from the outer frame.

3. Use a foam brush to paint several thin coats of white paint between the tape strips. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to create additional placemats along the table. Allow the paint to dry following manufacturer’s instructions on the paint can.Tip: Paint a couple of coats horizontally and a couple of coats vertically to create a fabric-like texture.

4. Remove each strip of tape by pulling the tape slowly and back onto itself at a 45 degree angle.

5. To create the striped pattern, apply strips of painter’s tape side-by-side within the center of the painted rectangle. To get evenly spaced stripes without a ton of measuring, cover the entire center with tape and then remove every other piece.

6. Paint the stripes in the same manner that you painted the border of the placemat in Step 3.

7. To reveal the striped pattern, remove each strip of tape by pulling the tape slowly and back onto itself at a 45 degree angle.
