Whoever says that that old little table or dresser needs to be thrown away just because the top is all raggedy and torn up with water rings and missing finish? In just an afternoon along with…
- An outdated datebook with full color images.
- An old ugly piece of wooden furniture.
- Sand Paper.
- Modge Podge.
- A paint brush.
- A cup of water
- And scissors.
The first thing you are going to do is spend an hour or two cutting the date book apart. Cut out the artwork from the daily calendar. Cut them clean and in a linear pattern (i used rectangles).
Next, go through your new stack of cut artwork finding the ones that work best together. I usually go by a color story rather than an image theme, but the choice is yours.
Then you will want to sand the top of the table making sure all lifting sealant has been removed and it is sanded down to be able to have a solid foundation for adhering.
Wipe table free of saw dust.
Starting in a corner, take your Modge Podge and dilute it a little bit with water and apply it to the table. Also apply the Modge Podge to the back of the artwork. Lay wet on wet. Taking your brush with undiluted Modge Podge, paint the top of the piece of art applying from the center out, removing air pockets with the brush as you apply.
Continue until you have all pieces down and top is covered. Let completely dry.
Apply another coat of Modge Podge over the whole table to seal it.
and… Voila! You can turn this…
