Re-Post: Favorite little table


I wanted to go back and find this old post from 2 years ago, because I still love my little table :) And I probably have tons of new readers (um, I hope?). Enjoy!



This weekend we were cleaning and Chris was re-arranging some furniture in the living room. I have this hideous pink $10 table the was from Ikea and it's been sitting in the living room covered with magazines. Yuck. I had it in my old room back at home when my color theme was grey, white and pink. So Chris says, why don't we re-paint it or something? So all day I was trying to think of the best way to cover the table: paint? wallpaper? contact paper? wrapping paper? I finally got annoyed searching online for a few hours and decided the best and quickest way would be to get some mod podge and cute wrapping paper. I grabbed my mom and we hit up Michaels and Target. And $10 bucks later...voila!

Thanks for sharing this post again! Love what you did with that little table! It's funny, I think we all must have one of those little side tables from Ikea-- I know I have one in black. Now you got me thinking of ways to spice it up. = )

Love this! I have to seal up the cabinets we did in the kitchen and I think mod podge is definitely the way to go. Thanks for the inspiration!

that's such a clever idea! I had those same tables and eventually just tossed them. I wish I would've thought of something like this before I got rid of them.
