Makeover a Card Table Using a Spray Paint, Shower Curtain, & Mod Podge

We love playing games and camping!! So for our trip coming up, I decided to help our sad card table we throw a cloth over to use, and recreated a fun game table!! Spray painted the frames and covered the seats with a fun shower curtain!! They make a great affordable choice when recovering any chair cushions. Plus they are already waterproof and make for easy clean up!! I used Mod Podge Fabric glue to make them adhere and lie flat!! Look how fun it turned out!! You can see more here...

I used Krylon Dual Paint and Primer to spray the old table and chairs.

Using a shower curtain is a fun way and inexpensive way to recover the top and chairs. It provides the water repellant for easy clean up and fun pattern.

    I guess I must have missed how you got the top of the table off the frame. I have a very old card table and looked at it many times trying to figure out how to get the top off. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks...Love your fabric.

    Love this idea!!! Using A shower Curtain is Genius!!! My question is, did you paint the chair backs by hand? It really brings it all together! Nice Job!!!

    I just bought a vintage card table yesterday to make over for crafts! I was look at western look vinyl, but the shower curtain idea is smarter! I need something waterproof and also need something easy to clean up.
