What did you do on Saturday?

I was sitting around watching iCarly with my kids and glanced over at this horrible looking table. We've had this thing FOREVER. I think we've had it longer than my oldest child.

My kids have had it out playing games on it ever since Grandma and Grandpa were visiting. My daughter was picking at the top and of course I scolded her and told her not to pick anymore. Then I got an idea.

"Paris, want to go to Corn Wagon?" (it's one of her favorite places to go- seriously)

I picked up some Amy Butler laminated fabric and set to work. Only a couple hours later and I had this:

It only took that long because I had to wait for the spray paint to dry. I didn't even have to buy any- I had some that matched already!

All that old table needed was a little "LOVE"



Now I just have to do the chairs!

Wowow!! That's so gorgeous! Did the top just pop off and back on, or did you have to problem solve?

I spent mine enjoying the rare sun that we had. I absolutely love that table. That's the best idea. I need to do that to my table and chairs too.

I love that! It came out great- looks fantastic. I spent my Saturday morning working, but spent the afternoon snuggling with my son.

Organizing my quilt room and loaded a quilt on my machine. No hockey to distract me!

Ok, that's just freaking adorable. I HATE having to get out the card table, but that would be just wonderful to show off!

What a great idea. I have an old card table around here and that's just what it needs to bring it back to life. Thank you for the inspiration.

I think the fact that you had all that on hand is the best part!

Fantastic redo. I have a ratty table that could use a make-over.
Thanks for sharing.

Well now that table looks fabulous and fun, but would be the dickens to work a puzzle on LOL. I have a question about sewing laminates, what type and size of sewing machine needle would you recommend? Thanks

Ciao
