There are different types of pong tables and each has different dimensions. As we share in the following table

Usually, pong tables are 2.44m in length, 0.7m in height, and 0.6m in breadth. But as we declare pong tables are available in different sizes and shapes. As you know, in this game players consume alcohol so the table must be strong that can bear the pushes of players.

What you will need to make Custom Painted Beer Pong Table?

This is a fun activity of making a custom-painted beer pong table at home with your friends. We will explain the procedure of painting your table step by step. So let us discuss the things needed for painting the table. I am damn sure that if you follow each and every step you must design a great quality table that will be durable. Here is a list of things you need for designing purposes.

  • Table of your own choice (should be 8 x 8)
  • Acrylic paint (preferably Folkart Brand)
  • Painters tape
  • Paintbrushes (preferably from Micheals)
  • Sealant (Try this)
  • Primer (best one)

How To Make A Custom Painted Beer Pong Table (Step by Step Guide)?

Now you must have collected all the things you need to design a custom-painted beer pong table. So let us follow some easy step to make your table looks attractive.

Step 1:

Take the table you choose that is supposed to be 8 x 8 or standard 6 foot. A folding table of 6 feet is also the best as it is lightweight. I recommend a foldable table as it is easy to carry and transport.

Step 2:

Keep your table down. Some tables come with a glossy plastic coating that will not allow the paint to stick. So use  Scotch-Brite Padsor fine-grit sandpaper to remove some glossy coating. Then remove the sanded dust with a rag.

Step 3:

Use a primer on the table for a good base. Apply two coats of primer for a good base and let it dry completely.

Step 4:

For designing an outline use tape and draw your desired design. You can use any design for backgrounds like triangle or circle or anything. Use a smooth painter’s tape so it will not remove your primer.

Step 5:

Fill in each outline, you made, with your favorite color. Try to apply for more than one coat of color.  But let the first coat dry before applying the second. After this gently remove your tape from the table.

Step 6:

Once your background color has dried, you can move to the next part of designing. The design would be any of your choices like logo, in the shape of cups, hear, TikTok sign, ping pong ball, your name, or anything in your mind.

There is no boundary for your creativity here. You can also get a print of your favorite design, cut it out, and paint over it like a template.

Step 7:

You are almost done with it. Once all paint will be dry, seal your table so it will be waterproof, scratch-resistant, and durable to last many years. Roll on at least two layers of sealant, let it dry for a couple of days so it will be hardened. Now enjoy your table.

Final Thoughts

In some people’s point of view, designing a table is a very hard task. But if you follow the above guide, this will be easy as a piece of cake. Hope you like the whole effort made by us.If have any questions or suggestions feel free to comment.
