rags to riches

I got this table from my next door neighbor love her she is so sweet, so this table needed work for sure.I've had this cupcake wrapping paper lying around along with some tissue paper, mod podge, and paints thats all you need to accomplish this cuteness!!!

 grab a free table
clean it if dirty from being outside for days :) who cares it will be cute...

 grab all the tools you want to use


So first I cut a big enough piece of wrapping paper that would cover the top of the table then grab your mod podge ( whoa my foot looks swollen haha any who)

put a layer on the table so the paper sticks

 rub it down so all the bubbles and what not are out and I had left overs hanging over and I just trimmed them off with scissors!

next you want to put a coat on top so when your 3 and 1 year old eat on it and can be easily be wiped up :)


Loveland was the color I used it matches Chloe's bed I had plenty of left overs to use up.


I didn't take pictures of me doing the chairs but I took valentines tissue paper cut out a square to match the chair and repeat with the mod podge. I painted there names on each chair and viola you have a rags to riches table set for your little one i'm in LOVE with how it turned out!!!

and if you start to paint their names to far over just put a heart on the chair to make it look even!!!

let them eat!

 enjoy everyone
Peace Love and Cupcakes Amanda
