Restoring Old Side Tables

I've had these two tall side tables in my basement for years so I decided to bring them new life.
It was simple, really...... I bought a can of Benjamin Moore brown paint with primer and after sanding down the tables I painted them with a roller and a brush.
I had some 12"x12" canvas fabric squares so I decided to Mod Podge them to the top of the tables.
 Just cover the back of the canvas with a layer of Mod Podge.
 Make sure you use a brayer and roll out all the air bubbles.
 Then paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over top of the entire table top to protect the table from spills.
 I think they turned out pretty good.

You made those tables look so stylish and individual. So different from their original condition. Well done.
