A few months ago I wrote about how I changed the look of this table by adding a piece of decorative paper under the glass. The piece of paper was actually scrapbook paper, and I selected it because it contained items, like a passport, postcard, Eiffel Tower “fauxto”, etc. It fit in with our interests. When the Young House Love book came out, and doing this was one of their many projects, I knew I was on the right track.
I was getting a little tired of that particular look, so recently when I was at the craft store, I picked up another sheet of scrapbook paper. I think this one cost me all of 59 cents. I picked it because it looks like teeny mosaic tiles. I know it’s fake, but I think faux sounds
more expensive better, don’t you? It makes it sound as if it at least cost $1.00.
All I had to do was cut the paper down to size, remove some nails from the table, replace the existing paper with a new sheet, and put it back together. BAM!
Ta-dah!!!!! Doesn’t it look great??? I have to laugh to myself, because the difference is amazing.
Doesn’t it look like real mosaic? And the thing is, since it is under glass, you can’t feel it. So, I think people will just assume it’s mosaic and textured.
