Table Make-Over with Homemade Mod Podge...

Yesterday I showed you the beginning of a quick project.   
This table was a 'freebie' that I found along the road.  
I had painted it a while ago - but it looked pretty plain.   
With some decoupaged old sheet music on top - 
it rises to a new level (I hope).
planning the lay-out


Finished the whole piece with a coat of poly.

The song "Others" by C. D. Meigs has such beautiful lyrics.  
The first couple of verses:

Lord help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray
My prayer shall be for – Others.


Help me in all the work I do
To ever be sincere and true
And know that all I do for you
Must needs be done for – Others.

I used homemade Mod Podge in this project - 
3 parts Elmer's (or similar) glue; 1 part water.

You've inspired me - I have a little white table in my foyer that needs ... something, I didn't know what. Since I'm a piano player (quasi, you know, we do our best :) I'd love to ModPodge some vintage sheet music to the top - thanks for sharing this great idea!

Hugs,
Mary

The sheet music adds so much to your little table!
And you made something for free and saved it from being tossed out.. how wonderful.

Sweet! I love how you layered the different sheets! I use a lot of hymnal music in my furniture makeovers and I love the peacefulness it adds!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda
