Mod Podge Cloth Covered Table

This table was done by my sister Julie. Below is the before shot. Here's what Julie had to say about it:

The table with fabric on it is covered in hard coat mod podge so you can wipe it off. I spray painted the bottom of the table white. The chairs are from a used store. I recovered the chairs in yellow fabric with little white flowers in a diamond pattern. I also covered these with mod podge (the regular kind) so I can wipe them off. The chairs had ugly orange vinyl on them when I bought them. I think that any schmo can use mod podge on fabric (aka like painting with glue). The table was easy, but time consuming. I had to put on so many layers of the hard coat mod podge & sand in between each layer.

Julie also told me the hard coat mod podge has to cure for 4 weeks before you can use it. She's been setting things on the table, but isn't planning a spaghetti dinner any time soon. She got her hard coat mod podge online, but she has also seen it at Hobby Lobby and JoAnns. I love the results. Modern and inviting at the same time. Julie has a gift for decorating. She does a lot of trash to treasure style decorating. I hope to show you more of her stuff in the future.
