Last year, I bought a cheap, cheap side table for my patio — I think it was under $6. The glass top was painted a pretty blue on its underside, but over time, the paint had almost completely peeled away. Not a good look!
I scraped and scraped to remove the remaining paint, but there were a couple areas that were attached with rivets, and I couldn’t get under the rivets to get rid of the little patches of blue. This was not a good look either!
Knowing I had little to lose, I looked in my craft stash for colorful paper, intending to decoupage it onto the underside of the glass. I found a bright floral tissue paper that I hoped would serve to camouflage the unwanted blue specks. Fortunately, I also had some outdoor ModPodge to use as glue.
This photo shows the outcome. Up close, it’s definitely flawed, but I figure few people will be examining it carefully. I think it lends a nice plop of color to an otherwise boring section of my backyard. Score one for me!
