it started off as a dark oak stained table.

i sanded it


painted its legs

decoupaged the top

but the decoupage is to patchy (you can see the papers edges and i need to redo it)

do i go over it with napkins or strip it off and start afresh with napkins?

I really like the decoupage look.  What if instead of redoing it, you sand it down and then apply some watered down acrylic paint or water based stain and then wipe off.  It would give you a distressed shabby chic style and it would help hide the edges of the napkins.  I don't know what kind of style you are going for, but I think it would look cute.

I've never decoupaged such a big piece, but I'm afraid if you try to go over it without stripping, you're just going to end up with a very thick surface that eventually has to be stripped anyway.  If it were mine, I would go ahead and strip the top down and start over.  You've got a beautiful idea there and you don't want to be less than satisfied.  Just my opinion Smiley
