Our family loves superheros and my son wanted to update his room. I found this little old table on Facebook Marketplace for $10, and with a little paint, superheros, and a little love we gave this side table a makeover.
Here’s the original side table – clearly it had been well used and needed a little love.
I started by sanding the piece with my Black & Decker Orbital Sander.
I cleaned the whole piece with denatured alcohol.
I painted the piece with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk paint in the color Imperial. I gave it total of 2 coats letting it dry between each coat.
I then made a template with recycled paper for the top of the table and the shelf below.
I used the template to cut my superhero comic fabric.
I placed a layer of Mod Podge onto the tops of the table and the shelf below.
I pressed the fabric onto the Mod Podge and into place.
I placed a coat of Mod Podge over the top of the fabric to seal and protect it. Mod Podge goes on white and dries clear.
We love how the table turned out.
