Isn’t this the cutest little table? My neighbor asked me to be on the lookout for a small white table and I thought this is it. Well, it is taller than she wanted and she was afraid what would happen if we sawed the legs down. But I wasn’t worried because I could do something with it. Then it dawned on me I can show you How to turn a table into a garden treasure using Mod Podge for this month’s The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest®”
Now I love Mod Podge and have done a number of projects using it. Most of the time I use fabric but I am determined to conquer paper. Mod Podge is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. For those of you who may not be familiar with Mod Podge, it is a product that you can glue it, and seal it. It is also a finish coat. For this project, I decided on the Hard Coat formula. They do have several formulas for different applications so be sure to check the website Mod Podge.
For this project, I went to check out Hobby Lobby for paper. The table is so cheap that the knob wasn’t even screwed it, it was permanently fixed. I still looked at the knobs and found a white flower. How could I resist!
To start off, I cleaned the table with Murphy’s Oil soap. Even though the table was white, it was rough looking so I painted it using my favorite DIY Chalk Paint Recipe. I combined a couple of different whites. Prior to that, I drilled out the old knob and then drilled the hole slightly larger for the new knob. There was a little area that was patched with filler and then sanded.
I didn’t paint the sides, drawer front and bottom of the drawer. I knew those areas were going to be decoupage. The paper was cut to size. I brushed the Mod Podge on the side and then carefully placed the paper on the area. I continued to do the sides the front of the drawer and then the bottom of the drawer. After it dried the Hard Coat Mod Podge was brushed over the entire table to protect it. I probably did about three coats.
Even though this table isn’t a vintage one and rather plain, adding the garden paper and new knob gave it personality. It did become a garden treasure.
