We have had this folding table FOREVER, probably around 8 years and it has seen better days. My girls LOVE to have tea parties and always use this nasty table. I looked at it and decided it would be really easy to take apart and spruce up for just a few dollars.
Here is what you need:
Use a screwdriver to remove the top of the table from the base.
Tape the feet with Painter’s tape
Take it outside and spray paint it. I put a box down so I wouldn’t turn my grass blue!
I love the Krylon Spray Paint because you can change the nozzle for how you are spraying. You can get some here.
It took about 2 coats to paint the table. I let it dry between coats.
While it is drying, you can cover the table. I got my flannel backed vinyl material from hobby lobby. It cost under $3 for a yard. You could also use a table cloth.
I left the other table top on, but you can remove it if you want. Use the staple gun to staple the material to the table top.
Trim it close to the edge so you can screw it back to the base.
Hammer in any staples that didn’t go all the way in.
Now you are ready to screw it back to the table base.
My girls were so excited for their “new” table. It only cost my $3 to do because I already had the spray paint! I loved that!!
