Here's the $20 dollar table that my daughter found at a friend's yard sale. There are before pics in the How To Video below. Since it wasn't an expensive table I thought I'd try out wrapping paper for the top of it since it's so inexpensive compared to wallpaper. I've never done this before but it worked out way better than I thought.
The biggest problem was trying to video tape when JoJo was in the tub. He made an appearance during the video. Lucky for you he's still short enough you didn't get any naked fanny. He was distraught over something right at the critical moment of doing one side of the table. So the video is a "how to" and "how not to" do it. The table is still nice despite the fail part.
I know most people don't paint or draw so this floral is a way to get that look without having to learn the skill. This is gift wrap pattern part of my first art, fabric, and papers collect. I even had some friends on Facebook name 2 of the patterns.
If this table was important to me I might have ordered wall paper and tried it that way. I think. I haven't done wall paper on a table before either. Maybe I'll try that with the next project.
Here's the video. If you like it, let me know.
Here's a DIY Christmas Project. Or Artist's gift. Or Bridesmaid's gift. Depends on who the gift is for and what style of supplies you get. Whatever you choose this is an easy, adaptable project. No glue. No paint. No special talent. Just Iron, add stretch cording then add a button. I'd never used iron on vinyl before this project but I'll definitely do it again.
