$3 End Table Makeover

This $3 End Table Makeover was worth every penny. My VERY kind Sister and Brother In-law gave these to my husband and I when they remodeled their optometry office. We were newly weds and needed furniture. This has been our living room end table, our bedroom end table, and now my daughters end table. I was tired of the "waiting room" look and wanted to give it a face lift. Talk about a big difference! This helps bring all of the colors of her room together. Just some spray paint, scrapbook paper and mod podge made a simple and darling upgrade.

2 cans white spray paint ( I purchased the $1 cans of white paint from Walmart)
Matte finish Mod Podge
Scrapbook paper to make a collage

I sprayed about 3 coats of paint to cover the blonde wood. While drying I took the glass from the top and grabbed my books of scrapbook paper. I started cutting and making a collage of layered paper. Once happy with the collage and colors I took a cell phone picture. I laid the phone down where I could see the picture well. I painted the glass with the mod podge and layered down the paper according to my picture. When finished I painted another layer of mod podge to seal it. I placed the glass back in the end table frame and put it in it's rightful place in my daughter's bedroom! EASY PEASY!

  7. can you tell me where can i find the same table...orginal one!

    1. The original table was a gift to me. My sister was redoing her husband's optometry office and gave it to us. It is seriously from the 70's. Try thrift stores and flea markets to find a close second. This is a good example of what you can do to a glass top end table to "modern-ize" it.
