I apologize if this message has been posted twice.  I have been told that it has, but I can't find the post anywhere.  Sometimes I can't see things, sometimes the internet is wrong.

Okay, so I'm re-doing two old TV trays that I found at a yard sale.  I was thinking that I'd modge podge some kitchy food graphics on them, or maybe something like vintage TV stuff.  Does anyone have any other ideas?

Second, I think the modge podge glue may become tacky once it has been wetted.  Is there anything I can do to seal it so that this doesn't happen?  Or is there another method I can use?

Thanks to anyone who can help!  I'll post pics once I've completed the project.

I think big life-sized pictures of kitschy TV dinners would be amazing.
I have a set of TV tables from a garage sale as well (mine are metal, I paid a quarter for the set!) that need refinishing.
I was going to spray them all in sherbet colors but now I may have changed my mind.
Thanks for the inspiration!

PS:  I wonder if you could seal with a clear varnish/spray?

That's awesome!  I love to hear that people like my ideas.

I work at Value Village (not a great job, but fabulous discount and shopping) and it's right beside a Michael's.  I'll pop in on lunch tomorrow and ask about a sealant.
