I’ve shown you a lot of decoupage projects lately, so I thought I’d show you another one that I did years ago. When I got my first apartment, my entire apartment was furnished from thrift stores. Here’s how I turned an ugly side table into a usable piece for that apartment.
First, I bought a random $5 table from Goodwill that met the size requirements I was looking for. Then, I painted the table black. Once the table was dry, I applied a layer of Mod Podge to the top of the table and quickly placed scrapbook paper on top of the wet glue. I used four pieces of scrapbook paper that looked like pages from a dictionary and left a few inches of painted black edge along the top of the table. Lastly, I applied a second layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper, and then let it dry.
After supplies, this table was less than $10. I still use this table in our house now, so I’d say I got my ten bucks worthJ
