Hello there peeps! I hope this finds you well!
Today I need to ask you a favor.
I made this little table top, but I am stuck, and I need your advice.
Big A and I have three tables - two are end tables, and one is a coffee table. They're all glass topped and I dislike them. A lot. Because they're see through, I also walk into them. A lot.
All they do is collect dog nose smears, finger prints, and show every single crumb and minuscule particle of dust.
I can't afford to replace them, but for the past couple of years, I have been keeping my eyes open for something fun, in thrift stores and at garage sales. Nuttin' honey.
Meanwhile, I've been stewing over what to do with them for the time being. Finally, I had an idea. I would mod podge one of them with burlap! I thought it would look so rustic and cool, so I googled and searched, but I couldn't find any examples on line.
So, ignoring what may have been a fair warning to proceed with caution, I just did it.
I laid out one of the end table glass tops between two chairs, and painted it with mod podge.
I put the burlap down, and then painted that with mod podge.
It took about four days to dry.
When it was finally dry, I popped it back on the wrought iron base, and was completely underwhelmed.
It's just okay, right? It looks better than glass with dog boogers and sticky finger smears, but now what?
Should I put something around the edges? If so, what? Please help me!
