END TABLE REFURBISH




A beautiful old peice of furniture (under $5 at the D.I.)... Four hand picked peices of paper, adhesive spray and a thin board... Beautiful! and OH-SO classy! But we're not even close to being done...
The paper looks GEE-ORGEOUS! Eh? I'm loving this classy style, but this table is going in a CHIC house, so let's see what BLACK will do...

Mmm, I'm loving this...could I get a slice of cheesecake to go? (sorry, LOVE makes me think of cheesecake)... I'm crushing on this pattern of paper... Yes...THIS paper... So I decided to take a light wood stain and an old rag, and went around the edges of each paper to make it look older... To match the old paper, I took a sandpaper-block to the black chic table... Just a lil' sandin... ...and a lil' lovin... ...and beautiful wood detail...is enough to make me happy....
This isn't going in my house, but I think I found a good home for it.
I'll enjoy the pictures of my labor though.

Oh, this is so funny but I've got you beat. I only paid $2.50 for mine and it's very much like yours only it has a drawer in the end. Mine also has a hole in the top. What did you use to close the hole? Obviously it is something that the paper adhears to really well. I was considering tile for the top but that look just isn't what I am looking for.

You did a really nice job I love your table. I'm painting mine white~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

I can't believe your luck, I was at the Di twice in the last week and I spotted good things but they wanted upwards $40 for most things, what's happened to the DI? I'll keep looking. GREAT job I need something to transform, so jealous!

Your table is fantastic! I love everything about it from the black paint to the patterned papers, but I think distressing it was the best move of all. I just LOVE the results. You go girl! Definitely "Very Cuegly!"

Oh your table looks great. I'm planning to paint two end tables black and distressing them. I have new furniture coming and need to get them done! The table is stunning!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me.

I love it...I love the idea of using paper to fill in the hole...and it can always change as seasons, moods, or decor changes!! So Cute!!

Julia said...

Great work on this table - what an original thought - the scrapbook paper instead of the trials of getting glass for that table! Good job!

Just ugly enough to be cute? That sounds like a style I like! I LOVE this table. But how did you get the paper into the table top? I would love to copy this idea!

Living With Lindsay said...

You breathed new life into that table, didn't you? What a great idea to use the paper like that. I really love it!
