ABC Decor

Today is my sister's 22nd birthday! Whew she's gettin' old...oh wait...that must mean I am, too! For her special day I wanted to surprise her with a special How-To Gal furniture makeover. I drew my inspiration from a recent Design Sponge post:

I transformed a table I found at a thrift store for $3 (sorry can't find the before picture...hubby wiped my computer and things aren't back to their original location yet!) and did the following:

Step One: Painted the top my sister's favorite color of green

Step Two: Traced and cut letters of different fonts out of contact paper

Step Three: Stuck all of my cut letters and some letter stickers all over the table top in a random pattern

Step Four: Sprayed the entire table with a few coats of glossy black paint

Step Five: Removed the stickers and contact paper when the paint was still a little wet


A funky table for my fun and spunky sister!
(hahaha, get it? fun+spunky=funky. Wow, I'm writing this post WAY too late tonight)

I'm also giving her a beautiful flower headband from my Etsy shop.

Happy Birthday Sista!


  1. Very cute, I'm sure your sister will love it! Girlfriend... you need to get yourself a Cricut!!!!! If you get that and the program "Sure Cuts A Lot", you can cut ANY font, ANY shape, etc. that you want, directly on the vinal. I can even tell you where to get vinyl really cheap! That cutting stuff out by hand is for the birds!!! (That table was a true labor of love!!)

  2. I am the luckiest sister in the world, I know. My ABC table TOTALLY rocks and my new rosette headband adds that dash of "pretty n' pink" every girls needs in her birthday outfit.

    Thank you, Anna Rose!
