I'm always on the prowl for folding tables. Lightweight and versatile, they can be used for everything from craft supplies to snacks, then stashed away neatly in a closet when not in use. I recently found one in need of a facelift at a thrift shop in my New Orleans neighborhood. A simple paint job seemed the obvious solution. But for a durable, decorative surface, I decided to decoupage the top using wrapping paper. The result? A pretty, practical addition to any room.
