24 Ideas for Small Table Makeovers


Inspiration for small table makeovers using paint, stencils, image transfer, decoupage, and more.  girlinthegarage.net

One of my favorite types of furniture to paint is small tables.  You can easily find them at thrift stores, yard sales, and online (Facebook groups and Craigslist) and they’re usually pretty inexpensive.

Small tables are perfect for experimenting with different types of painting and creative designs.  Below I’ve categorized 24 of my small table makeovers into four groups: Stencils, Decorative Designs (not stencils), Decoupage with Mod Podge, and of course Paint Only.  I hope that by looking at these tables you’re inspired to try something new with your own furniture makeovers.
