my sister-in-law gave me this table for our playroom awhile back. its great – round with a pine top and black legs, very sturdy. but it was a little boring on top. i’ve been wanting to try decoupaging the top for a bit, so i’ve been saving scraps of wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, invitation papers, and leftovers from other projects.
i/we (the girls kind of helped, too) started by laying out the biggest pieces of paper we had to try to cover the majority of the table.
next i layered on these flowers which were actually leftover from gracie’s first birthday invites! yes, i tend to save a bit too much, but this time it was useful!
last came alphabet cardstock i got on clearance, and abc stickers. also layered on are misc stars and dots i punched and cut out of more paper scraps.
believe it or not, i’m not done, just out of energy for now. i don’t really like how much i can see the shapes of the original large papers i layed down, so i want to layer more on. also, around the side edges i plan to just line it with maybe brown paper, then on the top edge i have scalloped some light blue paper that i’ll see if i can get it to lay right going around the circle.
the countdown is on for the babe, so i’m trying to get out all of my craftiness i have inside before i’ve got a boy attached to me and things slow down a bit.
