DIY | Mother's Day Pink Cafe

Thursday, May 5


Alright, who doesn't love a pink table?! With spring in the air, I especially enjoy working on projects that get me outside a bit more and up-cycling my backyard furniture with a new paint job definitely hit the spot. With Mother's Day just around the corner, I wanted to give her something we could both enjoy as an experience. Given that we both love cafes, chai tea lattes, and the color pink, I decided to create my own little pink cafe for her right in my backyard! It requires going outside to get your hands a bit dirty and your clothes a bit paint stained, but it's entirely worth it. Plus, you never have to change out of your pajamas to get that cute Instagram shot everyone takes at cafes! This project was inspired by the Pink Grapefruit hand wash by Method, which I'm so glad I had on hand (you'll see!). Keep reading below for a quick and easy way to update your backyard furniture and build a pink cafe for Mother's Day!



    
    DIY PINK BISTRO CAFE TABLE
     PREP TIME: 5 minutes | CRAFT TIME: 20 minutes | DIFFICULTY: Easy




SUPPLIES:
2 Pink Spray Paint Cans
Small, Bistro Table (got this one here)
Large plastic sheet or newspapers

DIRECTIONS:
1. Start by laying down a large plastic sheet or set of newspapers on the floor to protect it from paint. Make sure you do this in a well-ventilated area (outside is best) and use gloves and a face mask to protect yourself from fumes carried by the wind.
2. With your spray paint, coat the table with a base layer. I started with the table legs and did the top last. Wait until each coat dries and apply another layer to build on the color.
3. Seal the color with a glossy or matte clear coat and wait at least 1 hour to ensure everything is completely dry.
4. While the paint is drying, wash your hands off well with soap, like this pink one from Method!
5. Prepare your plates, cups, and cafe treats as desired. Set some chairs around your table, invite your mom or friends over, and you're all set!


Things might get a bit messy, but don't fear! Your now chic backyard will definitely thank you! I tend to be quite sloppy whenever I do creative projects, especially ones involving paint. When Method reached out to me to try some of their products, like this hand wash, I was really surprised by one thing -- it's smell! I washed my hands using their Pink Grapefruit scented hand wash and I couldn't get over smelling my hands all day...there was no trace of a paint smell. I like that their products actually smell like real things and not like chemicals. They're also non-toxic, so that's a major excuse for me to just get messy all the time now! 


I can't wait to share this project with my Mom on Sunday (this would also be a great DIY to do together)! I had a blast working with Method on this pink delight, do you have any furniture upgrades you'd like to do? Feel free to share below, I'd love to hear!
