Mod Podge Table

Marian ParsonsMiscellaneus41 Comments

OK, I’m hooked on Mod Podge. I used it for the very first time on my shelf makeover and decided to try it on a table. Why not?I purchased this table at a yard sale for…I think $2.00. I bought 3 tables that all looked very similar, so I forgot which one I bought where. This is a before picture of one of the similar tables. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of the one I’m featuring in this post. Darn it! I primed it (this is the other similar table, not the actual one) and painted it in a vibrant blue from Sherwin Williams called Open Seas.

Here’s the actual table, all painted up and ready for the creative step. I really wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this, but after the success on my Mod Podge shelf, I decided to try it on a table.

I chose two complimenting scrapbook papers, one for the top and one for the bottom shelf.

I took some advice from Shari at Poplar Porch and dampened the paper to reduce bubbling when applying the Mod Podge. (Thanks Shari. It really did help!)

I glued it on and applied 2 top coats of Mod Podge. Isn’t this fun? I have not decided, yet, if I’m going to add any decorative painting.

I think this would look awesome in a graphic black & white as well. (I think I’m going to give that a try!)

This table was really dated and now it has a new life. Don’t forget to join me 10 pm Thursday night through Friday at midnight for Furniture Feature Friday! I have an awesome giveaway lined up, so you don’t want to miss it. Feel free to link any furniture related posts in addition to any home furnishings (such as accessories.) See you there!

  1. I absolutely love this idea. Seriously — love it! I've got to find me a piece of furniture to try it on.

  2. So cute! You're inspiring me with the Mod Podge kick – keep it up and I may just try it again one of these days (or maybe it's easier to just keep coming over here to see yours :-)) I love the paint and paper that you used. Very fun!

  3. Great project. I have purchased a couple of small tables recently that are just waiting for a makeover. One is going to get the chalkboard treatment you posted about earlier. The other just might get this mod podge treatment. Keep the inspiration coming!
    I also love your WISH banner. I have a cricut and I'm going to try the cereal box idea.
    Thanks again.

  4. Mod Podge is one of my BFF, sugar! Ibuprofen is the first but MP runs a very close second, chickee…. Darling. I've used it many times for these kind of projects.

  5. Donna,
    I love the idea of using newspaper! I might have to try that as well. I used glossy Mod Podge, but it is available in matte as well. The nice thing about MP is it's not only a glue, it's a sealer. It is waterbased, so you can't set wet things on it. Make sure you use coasters!

  6. It looks great! Love the color combination you used. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my grandmothers quilt. I may never find out what pattern it is but that is ok.

  7. Adorable table! I've found with my own Mod Podge projects it helps to add a few coats of Acrylic Sealer, especially if you happen to put something else Mod Podged on top of it. It helps to eliminate the stickiness that Mod Podge tends to hold, even when dry. It also helps give the project extra protection.

  8. That Mod Podge is such an awesome idea! The huge assortment of scrapbook paper out there really gives you a lot to choose from, and it looks like fun too. 🙂

  9. Did you put anything on top of the mod podge? I always find that it always stay slightly sticky and sometimes peels off when I remove something that has been sitting on top

  10. Love it – I just bought some scrapbook paper yesterday and my first bottle of mod podge – I'm working on a boring bathroom shelf – we'll see how it goes!
