I was so excited to purchase a plain wooden table with a glass top table at a garage sale last summer. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. It's taken me more hours than I care to admit (at least 50-60) and I am sorely disappointed with the outcome. I decoupaged old maps from the 60s, 70s and 80s on it, stained it, and put polycrylic on it to protect it. It just turned out a little lumpier than I anticipated and not quite as beautiful as I had hoped. Instead of showcasing it in my family room, I'm thinking of hiding it in my basement rec room instead. I had planned on displaying some old B&W family pictures and WW II letters in the top drawer. Because the top is glass, whatever is in the top drawer is showcased basically. The pictures really don't show all the imperfections, but in reality, they are quite obvious.
My old world map table hasn't turned out exactly how I had planned, but nevertheless, here it is.
