First Timer Decoupage

Well i have seen many a "Before & After" on the Design Sponge Blog that has inspired me to give it a go. Since I am a first timer I used a table from our basement that I bought off the side of the road last year for $5. You can see it has been painted a few times, which ended up causing me a lot of extra work. dang! I had to scrape and sand quite a bit....

Then I , of coarse, spray painted it with a primer, then white gloss finish.
Then I gave my first decoupage a whirl. Hmmm.. not as easy as I thought it would be, however I think it would have gone much better if I had used either thicker paper or fabric. The end result has some wrinkles.

and on a side note Mod podge costs $5.99 which is kind of a rip off for glorified glue. I think I could have mixed some Elmers and Water together for the same result...
