TV tables, or folding trays, are a fun tool to use when you’re hosting a big family dinner and you need extra places to feed everyone. You can also use them to hold your breakfast while you curl up on the couch to read the paper (on those rare mornings you have time!).
Unfortunately, a set of these little tables can set you back $50 to $200. So we’ve scoured the internet and found a few cute ways you can transform a cheap set of these tables (think thrift-store finds) into charming home decor you’ll love to use and display.
1. Stripe it up
Give those drab folding tables a fun, modern update with some spray paint and a stencil. This is a fun option because you can use any colored paints to match your current decor. You’ll need to seal the project with wax to make it waterproof.
2. Coastal makeover
If you want to completely transform the table to create a cool nightstand, you’ll love what they did to this table. A coat of dark blue paint, a few hooks and some rope turned this bland table into an eye-catching piece perfect for a guest room.
