Here's the table I found at a local thrift store a few months back:
Step One: Paint it black.
Step Two: glue the background papers.
Step Three: stamp until your fingers feel numb.
Step Four: cut out stamped words and arrange them, and then you're ready for Step Five: glue the words. Step Six: apply a coat or two of polyeurethane or a sealant, and you're done. Looks like this:
This table is traveling with me this weekend to beautiful Winterset, Iowa for the Winterset Art Festival this weekend. It runs all day Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. This will also be our first family camping trip. Should be interesting. FYI, I am not a camper. I have camped exactly once in my life, many years ago. No, we're not camping in a tent, but rather in the camper that has been adorning our property since it's (unauthorized) purchase several months ago. There's a good possibility this may be my last camping trip as well. We'll see how it goes.
