Map Table with Repurposed Hairpin Legs

A side table created from found pieces looks amazing!



What was I thinking when I bought this ugly blue table you ask?

Not my style, not my color!

But look down and check out those great legs!

That is all I wanted from this thrift store find... great legs.

I removed the hairpin legs from the very blue table...

Then after taking apart an old wooden Lazy Susan I re-attached the legs to the bottom of the "new" table top.

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old Ochre to paint the table top.

Then using an old sailing map of our nearby area, I cut a circle that would fit inside the edge of the table.

I found a collection of nautical sailing maps at a nearby garage sale.  The maps had markings on them from old races including personal chart markings and even a few coffee mug stains... very cool! 

The very best part is that these are the waters around us!

I used Decou-Page by DecoArt (affiliate link) to decoupage the map to the table. It worked great on this very wrinkled and distressed map.

One coat under the map, a little credit card action to smooth out the bubbles... 

then another coat over the top. I also coated the top with a waterproof sealer when the map was dry.

The table is going to a close friend who will be cruising these waters in their new boat.
