Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a great way to give furniture a new look.
I found this ho-hum side table at the Salvation Army for $15:
What I liked about this table besides the price, were the details in the corners below the drawer. Pieces like this are fantastic because they are like a blank canvas. There are just so many ways you could update this simple table.
I chose to paint it (surprise!) and add fabric to the drawer:
You know I should own stock in this fabric. It looks perfect on this drawer front!
I added the fabric using Mod Podge in matte finish. I brushed it on like glue with a paint brush, in a thin coat. Then I applied the fabric and pushed out any air pockets. Fabric, unlike paper, is woven so air can escape and there is no fear of bubbles.
I did not add a coat on top this time. I just brushed a bit of Mod Podge along the perimeter.
I love that the little details beneath the drawer show up so much better now.
For the hardware, I found a metal knob that had this diamond-shaped base piece with it at Hobby Lobby, but I replaced the metal knob with a glass one. I love how the two finishes work together.
I also lined the drawers with pretty paper. You can see a quick how-to here.
Just dropped this off at my booth yesterday. We finally had a bit of a thaw around here!
