Every year, I’d visit family in New York and would yearn for my next photo shoot of my favorite city. These are some of the photos I took, most of which I developed the old-fashioned way, by hand, from negative to print, in my most favorite place of my teenage world- the darkroom.
needed something other than a bulky tablecloth to make it presentable in our kitchen. With black and white stripe cushions on our wicked-ugly, beat up chairs, I figured painting black & white stripes on the table would be a good fit.
Dummy move: painting the black stripes on, THEN painting the white stripes in between
How it should’ve been done: paint the entire table one color (white) and THEN paint on stripes of another color (black).
This will take half the time and have you cursing only half as much.
Below, I painted the black stripes on (over the painters tape).
Next came painting on white stripes by taping over the black ones once dried.
