French Mod Podge Fabric Table

I'm finally back from 2 sunny weeks down the shore and couldn't wait to get painting again. Hope you are all enjoying the summer....going way too fast for me!

Found this a while back at the flea market. It sat because I wasn't crazy about the leather inlays and although they can be painted over easily, I just don't like that ridge they leave. I decided to mod podge some left over fabric on top of the inlays.

Lay out your fabric and paint a thin coat of Mod Podge on the "wrong" side. Let it dry and then cut to fit. This will eliminate any fraying.

Paint  Mod Podge on to your surface paying extra close attention to the corners and sides. Lay your precut fabric in place and smooth out any air bubbles. Seal w/ varnish.


I really like how this turned out. Kinda gives a hand painted look and the fabric options are endless. 



Have a happy week!

"Down the shore"??? Are you a Jersey Girl too??? I'm from South Jersey.
Your table looks awesome. I'm about to do the same treatment to a dresser I have. I bookmarked this post for reference. I do have a question though - when you put the fabric in place, did you ModPodge over it or just varnish?
Thanks!

THANK YOU for the part saying to glue the fabric before cutting! THAT is what I can't get right! What about something oval? What is the best way to cut the fabric then?

NMIGirl said...

I'm getting ready to start this project!

Did you sand and strip the table before spray painting it black?

Hoping mine turns out just as nice!

Thanks!
