Alrighty, I have this small table (it's about 3' x 3' about) It has all these water marks, stains, scratches. Any good threads on re-decorating a table? thanks.

Hey there - lately I've been getting on a beer/soda bottle cap kick where I decorate everything with bottle caps.  Belts, furniture, picture frames-- well what you can do it get a whole lot of these bottle caps (you can get about a thousand for about $35 or cheaper from eBay; free from most breweries)  and super glue each one to the top, and then after all that is done, go to your local glass shop and get a sheet to fit it and glue all four corners down to the table so it won't go anywhere and voila! Instant Emo lovlieness.  Smiley

There is always the old ModPodge standard to turn to. Have you seen the army-man table made by Swalish for the dollar store challenge? It is pretty awesome looking, although it won't fit with just any decor...here is a link

Good luck and post pictures!

this is one of my favorite projects:


you could scale it down to fit your table, or take the idea of doing something dry-erase with your table.

maybe even repaint it with chalk board paint, and you could write phone messages on the table?
