I always get the funny tingles when I get to share a project that I did. It makes me so happy! Here's one of my latest. I found this endtable and took a before picture - dusty, kind of boring. The other photo is what I did to it! I hope you like it. Below are the instructions.

Supplies & Tools

FolkArt Acrylic Paint - Teal, Glazed Carrots, Magenta, Sky Blue
Mod Podge Hard Coat, 8 oz.
Scrapbook paper of your choice 2 sheets (I used Carolyn Gavin papers from Michaels)
1 Flat Paint Brush
Craft Glue
Scalloped Edge Scissors
1 wood knob

Note: Correspond the paint colors to your scrapbooking papers, like I did! Also, if your table starts out really dark and you are painting with light colors, I suggest basecoating with White to limit the number of coats you have to paint.

1. Using the paint brush, basecoat the top of the table Glazed Carrots, the sides and legs of the table Teal and the bottom shelf Sky Blue. You will need several coats of all colors. Allow to dry.
2. While the table is drying, select two pieces of scrapbooking paper and measure the size you will need. Cut the correct shape and size out of two different (but coordinating) sheets of paper with the scalloped edge scissors. Set aside.
3. Glue the papers down to the table (top and shelf) using Mod Podge. Allow to dry at least 15-20 minutes.
4. While the paper is drying, paint the knob Magenta. Allow to dry and glue to the front of the table using craft glue. Allow knob to dry.
5.  Coat the entire table with at least two coats of Mod Podge. Allow to dry for at least 48 hours before using.

That is SO CUTE!!!!! I love it soo much!!!! I get excited when I share my projects too Smiley I love inspiring ppl!! Thanks for sharing this darling little table!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

That's paper!?!?  I thought it was bottlecaps or something like that.  It has a 3-D look to it.  Great job.

I would LOVE to have such cute colorful things like this in my place, but the DH doesnt want it..... ugh, something about having an 'adult' apartment, blah blah blah blah, I didnt hear much after that part!!  He used to not care..... but i think I scared him with COLOR!!    He's being such a baby!! 

I love the table, WONDERFUL!!

I am interested in personal swaps!
