So, I have the most boring computer desk. I must admit it looked pretty sleek and clean when I picked it out 4 years ago. Now its just looks plain and lost in my eclectic style living room. So here is a cheap and easy fix! Toddler safe!
Supplies: 1 yd fabric (for this size desk), Modge Podge, Spray Paint
(note: I used gloss Modge Podge, I would suggest a matte, as the gloss left slight streak marks on fabric)
Step one: Spray paint metal work. You may prefer to leave the metal whatever in color, but silver just did not match what I had in mind. If your fortunate enough you can catch your husband on an off day and convince him to do this, lucky me… today.
I chose a galvanized spray paint as I’m lazy and HATE sanding. This way if it bubbled it would only add to the effect. Turned out great!
Step 2: Lay your glass surface piece on fabric and trace pattern. You want it as accurate as possible to avoid annoying trimming later.
Step 3: Cut out shape you just traced. Easy enough
Step 4: Cover UNDERSIDE of your glass with modge podge
Step 5: Lay your fabric FACE DOWN onto glass. When complete your fabric will be displayed from underneath the glass for easy cleaning. Like I said, toddler proof. Be sure to smooth out all wrinkles and bubbles in fabric.
Step 6: Go over the fabric with another coat of modge podge. Be sure to go around edges to make sure it’s completely glued down. This step helps to find bubbles and secures the fabric to the glass a little better.
Repeat steps 2-6 on other glass surface and let dry. Trim excess edges that may over hang glass.
NOW PUT IT BACK TOGETHER!!!
