I come across these half tables quite often & can never pass them up. They're perfect if you need a small table by a chair or sofa, or even as a bedside table or in a bathroom.This table had a decorative piece that was missing on one side.
Luckily it was only decorative & glued on, & popped right off with the slightest tap of a hammer.
I cleaned the table with White Lightening from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. After using the White Lightening, I cleaned with just water to make sure that no White Lightening residue was left behind.
Dixie Belle has some beautiful rice papers for decoupage. I've been waiting for the perfect piece to use their Art Deco Bird Pattern, & this table was it.
I used Dixie Belle's Satin Clear Coat as my decoupage medium & as a sealer for the table top.The background color of the paper matched Gravel Road perfectly. Although it would have also looked great with a contrasting color.
