Easy Furniture Makeover DIY // Walls Need Love Discount Code

I have always been a fan of antique things - clothing, movies, architecture, and of course furniture. There's something about the stories that go along with these items and the care that went into making them that I can't resist. But sometimes you find an antique item that could use a little modern love. When my roommate brought this amazing mid-century modern table home it was love at first sight. However, it obviously needed a little TLC.

Now, I am all about DIY's, but a lot of the time I'm just plain lazy. So I went with a quick fix for this guy. Walls Need Love came to the rescue with a gorgeous white-washed wood decal that would help cover up a few of the dings and imperfections of the table, brighten it up, and give it a modern edge. It took me about ten minutes to complete this DIY (I don't measure, I just go for it. So it would have taken longer if I had taken the proper steps).

First, I cleaned up the table. It had probably been in someone's storage or garage for a long time and needed to be spic and span to make sure the decals stuck as well as possible. After the table dried, I applied the decals and rubbed them flat to ensure there were no air bubbles. Then I topped the table with some decor and voila! Done.

The table fit perfectly underneath my other Walls Need Love project - THIS gorgeous antique map.
