Makeover of a small tripod table
Before: This small vintage table flecked by antiques by Justine, aka Mood feather, was damaged: the feet were in poor condition and the tray stained. For her, there is no question of missing out on that. She decided to retype it. After putting the feet back in shape and protecting them with a varnish of exotic wood color, Justine covered the tray with a matte black sticker. The result is both chic and sober. This small vintage table is now perfectly up to date. How to achieve this step by step? Clean, sand and apply the varnish on the feet and the underside of the tray. Let dry and apply a second coat. Cut out a piece of sticker from the size of the tray. Stick it by removing the air bubbles. Cut the excess with the scalpel.
