How To Decoupage Old Table with Mod Podge

Have you ever tried decoupage? If not, Then you should give it a try! Decoupage is a pretty paper craft idea. I am a big fan of paper decoupage. My inspiration behind decoupage crafts is my super talented friend Amy from Mod Podge Rocks. She is amazing in decoupaging with mod podge crafts. Today I will be sharing how I decoupage an old table with some scrapbook paper pieces. If you have any old table at home, Design it with decoupage. Let’s see how to decoupage an old table with Mod Podge.

You don’t need to have master skills in decoupage art for designing this table surface. Just a few craft supplies & a little bit effort & you are done! Have a look now :)

Is it looking like a wooden surface? At first glance it looks like a wooden table but it’s a metal table & I decorate it with paper decoupage only!

Here it is a before image! It was a boring dirty white table I used to keep it near window in good natural light for photography while placing a white or colored sheet over it. Super useful for my craftroom but pretty boring it looks there! So I thought to decorate it with paper decoupage!


Supplies You will need :

Brown Paper Tape

Mod Podge

Scrapbook or Podgeable paper

Scissors & applicator.

First of all I paste some brown paper tape on the surface of white table. Then I use Mod Podge outdoor formula for sealing the brown paper tape. There were some bubbles when I paste the paper tape. I have also used the same paper tape for my previous Washi Tape table design. Actually I have a big roll of that tape which I don’t know where to use. So better use it this way!

I was at a paper stationary store few days back & there I saw this gift wrapping sheet. The circle motifs were looking so good & I bought it without even knowing where I will use it in crafts. So here today I am thankful to myself for buying this pretty sheet. It’s time to decorate with this sheet. Isn’t it pretty?

I cut & separate the circles from the paper sheet. Then I cut some of these & make some half circles. Now it’s time to decoupage! yeah..

First of all I paste a circle motif in the middle of the table. Then started pasting other motifs around it & completed the whole design. I used half circles for the sides of the table. When pasting is done, I seal it with mod podge again. And it’s ready! OMG.. I was so happy to see what I have done!

    If using a thick white paper for your decoupage, such as pages from a book, soak the papers in coffee for a few minutes before applying to the table to create an antiqued appearance.

          Hey Nid, You can google it ” home made mod podge” otherwise try using movileth german glue, mix a little water & make it smooth, it will be a bit similar to the mod podge then!
