Free to Fabulous!January 8th, 2012 in member junk
I found this table in the "free pile" at one of the local thrift shops. Apparently, they thought there was no help for this one but I thought it had potential. It had a leather top that had peeled almost completely off.
I cleaned it, peeled off the veneer, and sanded a lot. The legs still didn't look great so I painted those and stained the wood that still looked pretty good. I had a 1983 National Geographic map of the Deep South and, since I'm a South Carolinian through and through, it seemed perfect to decoupage on top. I followed that with 3 coats of polyurethane and added a cabinet pull from my stash. Now, I have a super cute map table that cost almost nothing!
