So my latest creative venture has involved a beat up table from IKEA and an old copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It’s not quite finished yet, but I thought I’d share how it’s coming along…because knowing me it will take forever for me to actually be satisfied with it. 🙂
This table’s creation happened in many stages. First I had the checkerboard pattern you see there, made from squares of tissue paper. I let that sit for about 3 weeks and then I was bored with it. I found a tattered copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in a free box at my local library and ripped out all the pictures, as well as my favorite quotes from the book. I mod podged them all around the table and called it good…for about another 2 weeks, anyway.
One weekend while relaxing at home, I decided to bust out some old paints I found hidden in my closet. I added some color to some of the pictures on the table and eventually decided to paint them all. And there you have it. My Alice in Wonderland table.
This is a fun project that can be done on any cheap table. Mod Podge photos, quotes, paper, etc. and make it your own. The only bad thing about Mod Podge-ing is that once you start, it’s impossible to stop!
