It seems that everyone at some point or another has a hideously ugly piece of furniture that they just can’t part with. Over the years I have collected a lot of furniture that looks less than pretty. Case in point, I have an old end table that at one time was beautiful, but over time has become worn and has a few stains. So, I am going to re-beautify it and use it as a nightstand in my bedroom. I have chosen a mandala and a few other designs that I printed out on my home computer to decoupage onto it.

What you’ll need:

  • Mod Podge or similar decoupage medium
  • Fabric, paper, photos, or other items to decoupage onto the table
  • Paint
  • Scissors (to cut out designs)
  • Clear glaze

Step one: Clean the table thoroughly.

Step two: Lightly sand the table (and paint). This will get rid of any old glaze and make it easier for items to stick to it.

Step four: Cut out your materials, and arrange them on the table (do not use mod podge yet!) to figure out the placement of everything.

Step five: Leaving items on the table, one by one apply mod podge to the back and place it on the table, making sure to smooth out any air bubbles.

Step six: Once all the materials are glued down and dry, apply a generous coat of mod podge over the entire table. Allow to dry for 24 hours.

Step seven: Spray your newly decorated table with a clear glaze or clear spray paint to seal it. This will make it easier to clean and protect the materials from being stained due to spills, dust, and dirt.
