Okay, as promised I am back today to reveal my table redo. I realize that after my little kitchen, everything else is going to pale in comparison...NOT because I did such a great job on it, but let's be real, it was a kitchen after all! This is just a little table redone to hold a boring TV. THAT is my disclaimer...carry on!

I had to keep it simple...this table was old and made from what almost appeared to be scrap wood. No fancy paint job could be done because I could not sand down far enough to get to anything decent enough to work with! So it was black paint and wrapping paper, of all things!

You remember the before:

And here she is all done:

The drawer was just not working with paint alone. Because the drawer was wider than 12 inches, I was not able to use just a sheet of scrapbook paper (which was my first thought). In case you didn't know, Hobby Lobby has a great selection of everyday gift wrap and they had several black and white patterns that I could choose from. This paper is quite thick and perfect for Mod Podging (although I prefer a project called "Perfect Paper"...works so much better for me!). Better yet, I have a ton left over to wrap my daughter's birthday presents tomorrow!

Cost breakdown:

Table $10
Paint $4
Paper $3
Hardware $2

Total Cost $19

So whatcha' think?

This room is now done...finito, complete! Maybe tomorrow I will post pics of the whole room...it has certainly been a work in progress!

Till then...happy baking!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

Very nice! I wouldn't have guessed that it was wrapping paper. I'd love to see the whole room!

Dude!! This turned out so cute!! How weird that it couldn't be sanded though. Oh well, I think you did an amazing job of transforming that crappy little table into something beautiful and the perfect addition to your "studio!" LOL You're a re-do GENIUS!!
