Dressing up a tabletop

Hi Friend!  I wanted to share the project I shared over at Maybe Matilda this past Friday incase you missed it.  She is WONDERFUL if you don't know her---go and get to know her!!!

But anyways, without further ado here is my dress-up of a little side table!


My little table started out a bit plain. 


So I had fun picking out some of my favorite scrapbook paper ---Amy Butler design I must note. 



I then mod podged my paper (the side of the paper that you want on your project should be facing down) to the table.
Let your mod podge dry for a couple of hours and then...


Just add water....well kind of.  Dip your fingers into a little water and *gently* rub away your paper---the image will remain along with a layer of mod podge while the paper will be removed.


This is such a simple project, but the rubbing does take a while....so put on a fun TV show relax and rub the paper away (did I mention gently?!?).

When everything was all cleaned up and rubbed off I sealed the surface with another layer of mod podge.

And then my hand sander and I did some distressing of the little table.


Ta-da!  Your little project is all dressed up and has a more durable surface (this is an added bonus to using this technique as opposed to just mod podging paper right onto your project).


My little project {SO} isn't perfect, but I almost always say at the end of my tutorials, they never are....and I almost like them better that way!

I am really liking this new (to me anyways) technique and am already thinking of new projects to use it---are you?!?!

As a side note, 
I used a similar technique to make these pottery barn knock offs.



I am linking up to some of these parties, check them out for amazing inspiration!

I love this idea. I have to give this a try. I am trying to find a nice side table at the thrift store.

Hopefully, I will find one soon and I want to give this a try.

Oh goodness! I go out of town for a weekend and what do you do? Make an amazing (like drop dead gorgeous, I would pay $500000 for, am totally coveting) dining room table AND chairs, come up with a super cool mod-podge technique and still have time to feature your followers. In case you forgot...You. Are. Amazing. Love it all!

Cute table JaimeLyn. I haven't had much luck with Mod Podge transfers, and end up with bloody great blisters on my thumbs after all the rubbing (lol)...you make it look so easy!!

I love the pattern.

I have a table that could really do with a new finish but I'm not quite sure what mod podge is.

Fantastic! I have been wanting to try this out for a while now, but wasn't exactly sure how to do it. Thank you for the awesome tutorial!

LOVE it and love your blog (just found it yesterday) you make it look so easy. Is paper much easier than fabric? I modpodged fabric last year and it was a disaster. So now i'm reluctant to try it.
Any other tips you have for a newbie mod podger? :)
