TGIF and You Can DIY: Give your Dining Table a Funky Facelift

Add a diner-like vibe to your home with a DIY project that’s easy-peasy. Bring out all the postcards you have collected on your travels. If you don’t have any, don’t despair. Pick out ones that you like off the Internet – posters, vintage ads, postcards or anything that you like really. Take printouts – better still if you can get them developed into 4×6 size photos at the local photo studio – and get down to business.

Clean the surface of the dining table properly. Wipe it down with a solution of white vinegar (1 part) and water (3 parts). Let dry. Arrange the postcards/photos, interspersed with postcard-sized pieces of scrapbooking paper or newspaper, in any way you like. Forget Fevicol, simply stick them on with Sellotape (that way, it’s less icky to get off). Just ensure that your collage is harmonious and pleasant. And voila, you have a dining table that’s sure to be neighbour’s envy, owner’s pride.


Why don’t you throw a party to show it off?
