So, as per usual, being the genius I am. . . I forgot to take any before pics!  Roll Eyes

We recently moved cross country and in the process parted with a good many pieces of furniture. Shortly after we moved in, our neighbours (some very nice University students) moved out. Leaving us with some free (if excessively ugly) end tables they had acquired along the way. Free is free after all; so we lived with the hideous things for around six months. A quick Google search for 'ugly laminate end table' has netted me this fairly similar beauty for your comparison. lol I'm sure you've all seen one of these:



What a looker right!? Anyhoooo, I couldn't live with them any longer so with the help of some nice black paint, my printer, Google, and Mod Podge . . . we now have something I CAN live with:






Excuse the sideways-ness and photo glare lol Forgot that Craftster Pic Hosting doesn't let you turn images and my son is on my computer so I'm relegated to accessing the pics from this one.

Thanks for looking  Smiley

Definitely an improvement! I think if I put paper onto a table like that I'd always forget and try to pick them up off the table to tidy up!  lol

Thanks all  Smiley I don't worry about thinking there's clutter to tidy up. lol Between my two teenage boys and my old man . . . I'm never sure there is a surface hiding underneath their piles of stuff anyway.  Roll Eyes

I love this!
And I got a table like that for my brother (who lives with us).
I might show him your pics, and see if he wants something like it.
I hate that yucky panel look!

I agree, the improvement is great! And I too, would most likely end up doing the same thing, trying to pick them up to tidy up!!
