Turning Blah into TaDa with a little Mod Podge

This is what I had to work with: 2 old chairs, an old table, and a TV stand.  It was beat up, scratched, ugly, and not something I'd want in my house.  I painted it all white, got out the cricut machine, grabbed pacs of scrapbooking paper, got a container of Mod Podge and a brush, and a can of Polyurethane to seal everything.  Here's what I came up with:
The two chairs.  "G" is for GraciAnn and "M" is for Mariella.

The table.

The front of the TV stand. 

One side of the TV stand (and the top).

The other side of the TV stand.

See what a little Mod Podge can do?  If you don't have a Silhouette or Cricut, you can cut shapes and still work wonders.

  1. I love this idea! OMG! I troll sites like freecycle and the free listings on CL to find little stuff like this to refinish and gift out. I'm going to have to start taking pictures of what I do. lol I made something similar not long ago, but it was for a boy who is a Bob the Builder fan. Most of Bob and Co. are primary colors, so I painted everything in a very happy grey (I don't know how grey can be happy, but it was an uplifting color choice). I did the initials too and made it look like they were being constructed by the characters. It came out much better than I had hoped. :)

    Still loving this blog! :)
