Out With the Old, In With the New

Continuing on with the topic of creativity, I finally took some time to re-do a little side table that I had sitting around. Its completely outdated & was in need of an update. My sister in law gave this table to me about 6 years ago. It's been used as many things, but for the last year or so, it's just been sadly sitting in my bedroom with no functionality whatsoever. 

I was watching thesorrygirls from Youtube & was inspired to change this plain table into something more eye catching & functional to my space. They created a DIY on turning just about any plain surface into "faux marble." Real marble is just too costly & I just can't afford it. So why not? Plus, if all else fails, I can always just sand it down & repaint it a solid color. 

Here are some of the items I used. I didn't have to go out to buy anything since I already had these materials on hand. 



This is the before. It was cute, but bland. 

 






And here's the after. 

 



I love it! It totally adds value & art to my lil space. I'm excited to be able to use this table again!

  1. What a great job you have done there, the makeover looks like a brand new table and it looks so chic! :)
    I took on a bunch of DIY projects when we moved to Seattle and still have a few pending (want to make a dinning table, hope I get to it soon). And I cannot wait for your challenge to begin...
