So the other two coffee tables I had from Ikea have been decoupaged now too, with newspaper.
I love the look of decorating with newsprint, and I even use it sometimes in my art, to paint on.
I sat down and pulled a couple of newspapers from my recycling basket, cut out the text only parts in black and white – side note, I’m always disappointed with how much colour is in newspapers these days. I know that sounds strange coming from the Queen of Colour, but there you have it. Perhaps it’s a nostalgic childhood thing?
Anyway, back to these tables…..
I wanted the newspaper to have that aged, yellowed look, so I mixed half a cup of coffee (just instant) in with the glue/mod podge mix.
They’ve turned out just how I hoped they would!
