From DIY Striped Table to Life-Sized Scrapbook Wall Hanging
Okay. . .. . so y'all remember my DIY Striped Coffee table I painted? Well, a couple weeks ago we had some friends over and my cheap little table didn't fare very well. It was a cheap table after all. I guess you can't have nice furniture OR cheap furniture with kids. Oh well. One of the legs fell off and was beyond repair. After I got upset for about two minutes, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and transform the coffee table yet again.
I removed all the legs and kept the three good ones in case I can come up with another use for them.
I printed some of my favorite pictures from the summer and mod-podged them to the table top.
I was going to only do four 8x10 photos, but a couple of them were kind of crooked. I added some 4x6 photos, but it still looked not quite right.
So, then I added a couple wallet sized photos.
I tried to stick with pictures that had a lot of blue in them because I'm changing some of the stuff in my living room out to blue.
Once I had all the photos mod-podged to the table top, I mod-podged over it with glossy modpodge. I think it still needs another coat. I'm also planning on putting a strip of felt at the top so that it doesn't scratch up my walls. I'm just planning on leaning it against the wall somewhere.
I think it turned out pretty darn cute! Like I said, it still needs a more consistent coat of the glossy modpodge. You can see streaks! I'll fix it.
