An old children's table.After finding this bent and torn child's table, we recycled it into an adult side table.


Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 1


  • 1 roll contact paper
  • spray paint
  • scissors
  • pencil


  1. Remove the old covering from the top of the table. Remove screws. Set aside.
  2. A painted table top.
    A painted table top.
  3. Spray paint the metal the desired color.
  4. The metal frame of a table.
  5. Laying out the contact paper, wrong side up, lay top of table, right side down over contact paper. Draw around the shape of the table onto the contact paper with a pencil. Because the contact paper is rectangular and the top is round this will take two steps, repeating the same step on the other half of the table top.
  6. The underside of a table.
    The underside of a table.

  7. After it has been traced, using a pair of scissors, cut around the circle, leaving a 1 inch border. Then, clip all the way around the perimeter of the circle from the edge to the pencil line. This will help when folding the contact paper to neatly fit the table top. Carefully remove the contact paper backing. Turn the top of the table over and position the contact paper on both sides of the table top. Starting in the center of the table, smooth out to the ends.
  8. Removing the covering from an old table.
  9. Place the table top onto the legs of the table and attach with original screws.
