Card Table Makeover

“I found an old, tattered card table in someones trash pile. Since I’ve been wanting a card table, I picked it up, and decided to give it a little love,” says Lindsay at Diary of a Crafty Lady.

After peeling off the original torn and dirty cover, she took the table apart.  “It is easy to take apart a card table,” Lindsay reassures.  She spray painted the metal frame.  Next, Lindsay recovered the wood tabletop with new vinyl in a pretty floral pattern.  Put back together, the once trashed table looks fresh and new!

  1. Wow, I love that! Would never have thought of doing it. Such a difference!

    • I know I’m going to be paying more attention to card tables I see the next time I’m in Goodwill!

  2. Very nice! I like this flowers pattern!

  3. Really pretty, a complete transformation.

  4. What a creative idea…I saw a card table with 2 chairs at the thrift store for $9.99…I am going to go a pick them up so I can try this project…Will be great for my deck! Thanks…
