hey guys! ive been snooping around for months but this is my first post! my mom gave me this little side table when i got my first apartment... its a great little side table but it just looked so boring. i bought the scrap book paper on sale at target for just $5 (leaving me with tons of leftovers for other projects!) and just modpodged the whole thing!

i forgot to take a before pic until halfway through my project:

and this is the finished!!!:

im pretty happy with it. some of the modpodge came out bumpy and i think i want to pain the rest of the table... but my fear is if i paint it it's going to look like a little kids table (not that it already doesnt Cheesy)! thoughts? thanks for looking!

OOOHH!!! that looks super cute!!!!!! i looooove the paisley pattern. I think if you went with the dark chocolate brown that's in the paper it wouldn't look as little kiddish. personally i'd go with the teal/green color and would just not care about it looking childish  Tongue show pictures if you decide to paint it!

i once mod podged a table like this and the top was also a tad lumpy. my mom suprised me by buying me a little square of glass from a frame shop. they even rounded the edges so it wasn't sharp. it was about this size and it was only 10 bucks. maybe you can use the same idea...?

Be careful with glitter. It never goes away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

That is so cute. I love those colors and patterns!
I personally think if you oaint it you should go a rich brown.
That may make it look a little more grown up Smiley
