I recently rehabbed this side table that was a $13 yard sale find. It originally had a glass top that had long since been broken which left the entire wood top intact except for a large 2-inch hole on top in the front where the glass could originally be pushed up from underneath. I needed an easy way to fix it without cutting a new top. I decided to do a side table makeover with a decoupaged table top.
First, I needed to fill the hole in the top of the table. A slat of wood screwed in underneath the top, and then slice of of two inch dowel glued on top, and then filled with wood putty and sanded fill it in perfectly. While I was waiting for the wood putty to dry, I painted the outside of the table in a black semi- gloss paint. It took about 3 coats of paint for complete coverage. After moving the knobs and drilling a new holes, Rustoleum Universal Spray (awesome stuff) an it had a whole new personality. It looked so much more updated!
