How to update a table - Cut and Paste with Overlays

Today I am going to share how to update a old table by cutting and pasting some overlays onto it!

I entered a Fab Furniture Flipping Contest! It is a contest where a group of bloggers compete by updating and revamping furniture for prizes. There is different themes each month. This months theme is Cut n Paste with Overlays.  And we use decorative panels to update the furniture. 


Here is how my piece started out


Very brown with some scratches, it has tons of potential and can be a great piece but it just needs a little bit of love.  That is where overlays comes in. For this piece I custom mixed a blue color and just kinda threw it together. This is how it came out



After I painted in the pretty beachy blue  color I sanded it all down and distressed it around the edges and in the groves to give it a bit of a older look. 


After all that I took the decorative panels and marked where I needed to cut the overlays to put on the table. To cut the panels I used a rotary cutter to ct them it was easy to cut and didn't take long at all. After they was cut I decided to not paint them and leave them white. and I used E 6000 glue to glue them in place and it worked wonderfully. 


After all that was finished the only other thing that needed to be done was the table needed to be waxed! and that was it. That is how easy it was to update this table into something great!

You can go see how all the other projects turn out over here. If you would like to participate in the contest you can contact info@fabfurnitureflippincontest.com to find out
