Dust and all!
Map Table Top!
I found this IKEA Lack table at a garage sale. It was so inexpensive that I knew I could spruce it up somehow.
I started by wiping it all down and taking the legs off.
My in-laws were getting rid of their old maps from Illinois and I’m so glad I saved them. This table was the perfect size for one of the downtown maps of Chicago.
I dry fit the edges first by folding the map with sharp creases on all the edges of the table top.
This is the Mod Podge I used to adhere the top surface down.
Then I started at the corners to adhere the sides.
The edges were a little bulky, so I cut some of the excess paper away before I stuck it down for good.
Then I added another layer of Mod Podge to the sides.
Then on the entire top.
After I attached the legs, I brushed on a sealer just for added protection. I think it’s just so cute and what a great conversation starter. Oh, the neighbor dog approved too!
