What can I use as a side table? I’m sharing a DIY side table makeover from a game table I found at a thrift store.
Here is the game table I found at a thrift store. The top had some water damage and scratches, but the rest of the table looked great!
I lightly sanded the top and then used Krud Kutter to clean off the entire table.
I painted the surface with Mod Podge which goes on white but dries clear.
I had a book that was falling apart and not repairable. I used the pages that were falling out, and placed them onto the Mod Podge. I layered them so they’d over lap and fit the table nicely.
Once the first layer of Mod Podge had dried completely, I placed a layer of Mod Podge over the pages to seal them.
I let this dry completely. If this was going to be the top coat, I would do several coats of the Mod Podge letting it dry between each coat.
Since this table would be well used with glasses setting on it, I wanted to make sure it would be protected more from water or other beverages that might sweat or spill onto the table. Mod Podge is a water based sealer that is water resistant but not water proof.
I used Folk Art Home Decor Varnish to protect the table. I followed the instructions on the bottle and gave it a few coats.
Once the table was dry, it was ready to be used. I love how it turned out!
