Occasional table in the round.

Last weekend, Gadora scored a charming round occasional table at a garage sale. This week, she gave it some sass!

First wood glue was applied to the joints, then allowed to set. The entire piece was sanded and once the red basecoat had dried Gadora applied a mixture of the butterscotch (as seen in video) and a more subdued ivory. Pretty.

Went back in once top coat was applied and gave the table more red detailing. Then sanded, applied top poly-urethane coat… and let it dry.

StripeFinal touch: decoupage the vintage aviary-themed Katzenbach & Warren wall-paper to top surface. The beveled glass top perfectly weighed the paper down.

Finished piece. Isn’t she lovely? Now Gadora has another song in her head. Love you Stevie. For this very snappy refashioning of the round table, here’s an original you… Isn’t she lovely!

  1. I love round tables. They add such a unique, warm, feel in a room. And I especially love the bits of red (my favorite colors)!!
