Today's project is a tabletop that has been decopaged with vintage fabric.
The top of this little telephone table had seen better days. There is a large split in the wood, several nicks, and one corner even looked chewed on? Even though a coat of white paint was an improvement, I thought I would take it one step farther.
I absolutely LOVE this vintage voile, but because it is sheer and lightweight, I was never quite sure how to use it in my home. I decided to try my hand at decopage. Here are the supplies I used for this project: Fabric, scissors, decopage glue, bowl and sponge brush, and a mist sprayer.
The table was painted several days earlier to allow it to fully "cure" or set. The fabric was cut slightly larger than the table and dampened with the mister. After applying the decopage medium the the table surface, I worked the fabric into place. I damped and smoothed the fabric until I was happy. I actually left some wrinkles because I wanted it to still look like fabric.
I then covered the surface again with decopage medium making sure all the edges were secure. After it was dry, I trimmed any excess fabric and applied 3 coats of a spray-on polyurethane (sorry, forgot that in the supplies pic). I haven't decided which room I'll use it in, yet, but I like it. :)
