My Mod Podged Computer Table with Book Pages.


A few weekends ago, I finally decided to make a little table for my computer. I already had the piece of wood. I took it to my brother, who cut it to size 34x24, cut the corners off and sanded it for me. He also attached the flanges (I think that's what they are called) on the bottom. So, all I had to do is screw in the metal pipes and Mod Podge it.


I ripped up a lot of different pages as you can see from the following pictures.
Old song pages...

Old dictionaries...


Old survey pages...



Here you can see the shine after it was done. I did 2 coats of Mod Podge, then 2 coats of Polycrylic protective finish in clear gloss. You have to let each coat dry for a day.

These are the flanges (discs). These and the metal pipes where about $90.


I'm quite happy with the result. Now the computer won't be sitting on the dining room table anymore.
