Elegant Fabric Topped Side Tables {guest post}

More beautiful work by DeDe from Designed Decor. She gave these damaged leather topped tables a makeover with a coat of Elegance with some fun fabric detailing!

Have you ever been at a thrift store and run across the old leather top tables and wonder what would I do with that? How would I paint over the leather?

These table tops were is pretty bad shape and had a lot of cracking and small chunks of leather missing from the top. I have used Country Chic paint over the leather top in the past, but I felt these needed more.

I started by priming these tables with an oil based spray adhesive from Zinsser. These tables are made of Mahogany and they tend to bleed, so it’s easier to prep and be prepared than having to paint over again. I applied my new favorite color, Elegance. This color is stunning! I measured and cut fabric slightly larger than the table top in sets. I applied Wunda Size as my adhesive, trimmed the fabric to fit perfectly and sealed with Mod Podge.

These tables made a major transformation and are now worthy to place in a living room or used as bedside tables.

I also used "Liquorice" for the inside of the drawers. I like to add small details to my pieces and sometimes painting the inside of drawers gives the furniture so much more charter. I also used black spray paint for the drawer pulls to coordinate with the inside drawers.

Yes, one last detail, fabric on the bottom of the drawers. It's all about the details!
