Do you ever have something that has been sitting on your porch or in your garage for a while? Like, you bought it knowing full well that you were going to do something with it, but it’s been a while and you still haven’t done anything with it?
So I’ve had this table sitting in the backyard since the blog has started (so a year and a half now). Mom originally had the idea that she was going to use the table. She painted it white and she was going to use the rope that I used on the nautical board (see it here) to cover the top.
But then it didn’t work out. So I took it over and started by painting it with Rustoleum black spray paint. It covered really nicely, so I am extremely happy.
There are a few crack in the top so I knew that it had be covered. I bought some really pretty paper from Michaels that I wanted to use to decoupage. I used modge podge to apply the paper to the table.
I then used an exacto knife to cut the edges of the paper to make the edges clean. I had to modge podge the edges again to keep them stuck to the edge.
And here is how it turned out!
I love how it turned out. The modge podge worked well and I like how the black accents the black writing on the paper. I can’t wait to add this in my house when I move out of my apartment!
