Home Decorating Ideas: 9 DIY Projects for Transformed Tables

Want to freshen the look of a room in your home but don't have a lot of money or don't want to go out and buy a new-to-you furniture piece? Start with something you already have — a dining, coffee or side table — and consider one of these successful table transformations for your own home this weekend!

Add tabletop detail

Tiffany turned a thrift store table into a glamorous furniture piece with the addition of small pieces of wood glued down in a herringbone pattern.

Go two-tone

Take an existing table and paint it with two contrasting colors like this traditional style table Rae transformed. You'll get a fresh and modern look.

Paper and epoxy personalize

This IKEA table becomes an amazing customized addition to any room with paper and epoxy, a beautiful way to update the look of any side tables in your home.

From table to ottoman

Need extra seating in your house, not a table? Consider the idea in this project that turned an IKEA nesting table into an upholstered bench.

Add silverleaf

A few fresh coats of paint and some silver leaf transform this outdated coffee table. Could the same idea transform one of your tables?

Transform a patio table with paint

Have some outdoor tables that could use some updating? Do what Rae did with this glass and metal patio table and update with paint.

Refinish with the cerusing technique

Want to try a new finish for one of your wood tables on for size? Consider cerusing. As seen in this project, it could really change the look of a piece of furniture!

Add planks

This project shows that just adding some wood planks on the top of a table can make a dramatic difference.

New legs work wonders

A new table can be yours with just an updating of a fresh pair of legs and a bit of a top staining, like in this table.
