The Mort Family & Mini Makeovers Part 2

As I start wrapping up my series from the Mort Family Project, I would like to share a few more mini makeovers with you.

Jenna had these metal tables on her porch, three total.  This one was in the best shape, so we chose to use it in the baby’s room as a small end table.  But it needed a makeover first!

All three tables had a tile top, and most of it was chipping off.  Painting over them just wasn’t enough, so I decided to put a new top on them.  Easy as Pie!  I found these 12×12 tile at Lowes for .99 each.

Another quick project was a small piece of art I made using clip-art, Photoshop, and a pink sharpie.

I love using unexpected things to decorate with, what about you?
