Have you ever tried decoupage on a table surface? If not, Then you should give it a try! I am a big fan of paper decoupage. I am sharing how I decoupage an old table with some scrapbook paper pieces.

If you have any old table at home, Design it with decoupage.

You don’t need to have master skills in decoupage art for designing this table surface. Just a few craft supplies & a little bit of effort & you are done! Have a look now :)

How To Decoupage Old Table with Mod Podge

Is it looking like a wooden surface? At first glance, it looks like wood but it’s a metal iron table & I decorate it with paper decoupage only!

Here it is a before image! It was a boring dirty white table! So I thought to decorate!

Supplies You will need :

Brown Paper Tape

Mod Podge

Scrapbook or Podgeable paper

Scissors & applicator

First of all, I paste some brown paper tape on the surface of a white table. Then I use Mod Podge outdoor formula for sealing the brown paper tape. There were some bubbles when I paste the paper tape. I have also used the same paper tape for my previous Washi Tape table design.

I was at a paper stationery store a few days back & there I saw this gift wrapping sheet. The circle motifs were looking good & I bought them without even knowing where I will use them in crafts. So here today I am using the sheet. It’s time to decorate with this sheet. Isn’t it pretty?

I cut & separate the circles from the paper sheet. Then I cut some of these & made some half circles. Now it’s time to decoupage!

First of all, I paste a circle motif in the middle of the table. Then started pasting other motifs around it & completed the whole design. I used half-circles for the sides of the table. In the end, I seal it with mod podge again. And it’s ready!

You can have a look at my previous Mod Podge Crafts. I hope you will like my other ideas & DIYs. If you find it easy & interesting, Be sure to share this article with your friends. Because sharing is caring. Right?
