But she is quite the talent herself at transforming unwanted, worn out, antique pieces of furniture. In fact, when I saw this table that she got her hands on, I knew it had to be shared with you. So, ladies and gentlemen, here’s Ann to tell you all about it:
It meant more time involved, but that’s okay, the other forty pieces of furniture in my garage are just going to have to wait! The layering was a fairly simple and straight forward process. I did some really careful measuring, cut the wrapping paper to size using a brand new razor blade and yardstick to get a clean straight line. Then applied the wrapping paper with Mod Podge. Let me say, if you’re planning any project with wrapping paper, you might want to check Hobby Lobby’s supply before any others. Their paper tends to be nice and thick and coated, so it’s very sturdy and the Mod Podge doesn’t soak through it. Other wrapping papers can be very thin and tear too easy when applying the glue.
Now for the posters. I just repeated the same Mod Podge process with each poster, let them dry completely, and then coated the entire poster surfaces with more Mod Podge.
See! I told you she was talented!
You did a fantastic job, as always, Ann. You were so clever to use posters! It was genius. Pure genius! I had one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments. What a creative way to take care of a nasty problem!
Thank you for stopping by our nest and sharing your incredible transformation story! I have no doubt that this table will inspire someone with a fabulous project of their own!
