The above table was once a dated side table which we transformed into a majestic-looking, map table relic fit for an adventurer!
To copycat this project, all you need is a bargain buy from a vintage furniture shop or a small coffee table that’s in need of a little TLC. Alternatively you could upcycle a bedside cabinet or phone stand – any item with a surface that’s worthy of showing off.
Before getting started, make sure you sand off any rough patches and wipe down to remove any dust. Then, on top of a dust sheet or newspaper in a well-ventilated area, brush on Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint.
For this project we used the Dusky Pink shade but there are a whole host of shades to choose from to fit your room theme. Once fully dry, we spot sanded around the edges to give it a distressed look.
To add the map detail we used wrapping paper and carefully trimmed the edges to fit the surface before gluing and sealing with a coat of Rust-Oleum Polyurethane Finish.
It’s as easy as that!
Thinking of giving it a go? You don’t have to stick to maps – you could go for vintage music posters or personalised landscape photos from your favourite holiday. The world is your oyster!
