before and after: gabrielle’s table

gabrielle at mintage home sent over this great table makeover project. using a found table, gabrielle created a custom table top using martha stewart wrapping paper and then flowers (cut-out) from amy butler’s scrapbook paper line. finished off with a coat of bright green paint and a brown grosgrain ribbon around the edge it’s a whole new table. makes me want to hit the thrift stores and grab some more gift wrap. thanks to gabrielle for sharing!

If you don’t mind sharing…what did you (if anything) on top of the table, over the paper to seal it?


This turned out beautifully. I love the green legs paired with the patterned top. It certainly solves the issue of a tablecloth!


I did this with some of my stools and used a polyflex sealer but I didnt like how it urned out. What kind of sealer did you use if any?


WOW! That is absolutely stunning! I have so many furniture revamp projects in my head at the moment, this totally gives me a kick up the rear to actually start!


Ya know, I’ve been doing a bit of sprucing up lately too. You can truly change your world with paint. I love the wrapping paper idea. I have some very cool wallpaper that I will use on a table I just started in the garage. Thanks for the hot tip. Not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new.
I had some generic wall shelved that hold pictures or trinkets and I painted them a turquoise. They look great now. A good way to add colors to the walls if you don’t have the nerve to paint strong color. Put into accents!
