Those damaged coffee tables and end tables can have new life with paint, fabric and paper. In fact, many of these tables below were so damaged they were almost past saving. And they were painted once, but didn’t sell, so they received a second paint makeover. But with some small side table makeover ideas, they are now headed on their way to happy homes.
This coffee table was decoupaged with leopard tissue paper and given an aged finish. It was the perfect table for a client with a wild side, but one never walked through the door, so I toned it down quite a bit.
This coffee table received a fresh coat of black paint to give it a brand new look. It goes with almost any decor now. I painted the top and the legs the same inky color. The top was a little damaged, so it received a coat of paper then it was painted over. Decoupaging over a damaged table top with fabric or paper is a great way to makeover a wood table top.
Since this little blinged up table already had the bling on it, I had to figure out away to paint around it, and yet cover the flowers. I was bummed it didn’t sell, but I guess sometimes that happens.
So I decided on a stripped, french market inspired pattern. With all of the french and parisian decor trends going on, I knew this one was going to be a huge hit!
Once they were both repainted, they sold very quickly. Sometimes they need an extra tweaking and a new coat on paint to find the right customer.
