Outdoor Table Makeover DIY ~ Emoji Table ~ Garbage to Gorgeous® Episode #19 ~ Craft Klatch

Learn how to do this DIY table makeover.  I found this table in the trash and want to give it a fun new look!  It is a total transformation!

Here is a quick video tutorial to see exactly how I made it:

You will need:
-  Round glass table: check garage sales and drive around on garbage day
-  Yellow spray paint:
-  Black spray paint:
-  Rust reformer:
-  Scraper:
-  Wire brush:
-  Cricut: (Amazon)
or by direct from Cricut:  (Cricut site):


1.  Take the table apart.

2.  Scrape off any loose paint.

3.  Follow up with a wire brush.

4.  Wash it and dry it.

5.  Because there was rust, I used a rust reformer to neutralize the rust.

6.  Paint the glass yellow.

7.  Paint the frame black.

8.  When everything is dry, put it back together.

9.  I used my Cricut to cut out the face image, in different colored vinyls.

10.  I then applied the vinyl pieces onto the table.

Here it is!  It's a fun look and perfect for a number of different uses.
Here is a side by side before and after!

I hope you like it!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!



  1. OMG!! My daughter just flipped out over this table. I don't have a cutting machine tho. Could you buy the vinyls somewhere? Could you seal the top of the table to protect the vinyls forever? She said that's how long she wants it lol. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Could you adhere the vinyl pieces to the underside before you painted it? It would seem that would alleviate the need to seal the side you will be using and better protect it.


I always love to hear what you are thinking! I read each and every comment. Thank you for taking the time and stopping by!
