That beat-up table you inherited? Give it new life — and hide all the scratches on it — with one of these stylish fixes. 

  1. Decorative painter Ingrid Leess transformed this table with a paint comb and some creativity. See how to do it yourself at This Old House. 
  2. KerriAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farms used paint sticks and wood stain to craft a table that looks like a vintage find. 
  3.  The bold floral pattern on this table was created with scrap wallpaper pieces. See the instructions on BHG
