DIY Clock Table. Really good IKEA (or Walmart etc…) hack. Tutorial at Ikea Hackers here. *And you can still tell time.
DIY 21” x 48” (4ft) Bottle Cap Coffee Table . I am also obsessed with resin and mosaic crafts, and I knew this had been posted on Tumblr but couldn’t find the source. So I went on Pinterest and sure enough the source was there. When people in the comments section asked if resin was used to make this table, Melissa Stover here, who made this table wrote:
Yes, it is a resin poured over bottle caps on an old coffee table. The product I used is called envirotex lite - you can find it at most craft stores, but not always in large enough quantities for doing an entire table (go for the 1/2 gallon or 1 gallon size for that).
*Note: the resin blog I follow which I posted about someplace on Tumblr uses envirotex lite and envirotex has a new resin line for jewelry to be sold at Michaels in December that has “bubble release” so you don’t get bubbles.
DIY Suitcase Table. Actually pretty easy! Tutorial from Mrs-Adventure here.
DIY Chalkboard Table. Still want to do some kind of chalkboard project and with chalkboard contact paper coming out, lots of possibilities. From Design Sponge here. Originally found at fontscrafts here. But what was really interesting was in the comments section. Kim wrote in with her own recipe that she uses to sell chalkboard painted items:
We make and sell chalkboards, locally and I am going to let you in on a great big money saving secret. SHH! here it is…If you don’t mind a little bit of shine to begin with you can use black outdoor semigloss paint custom mix from wal-mart at $15.95 a gallon…Use outdoor semi-gloss have them mix Y8 or 64 part black only tint and mix…It is the EXACT same formula as chalkboard paint and you save a whole lot of money…After painting and it dries throughly…Rub white chalk all over the paint and then wipe off..This primes the finish and dulls it so it is not shiny……….We sell over 50 chalkboards a week and have never had one complaint about them…..People love them….And we can actually make money selling them wholesale with this savings……
