Reviving an Old Table

If you want to brighten up an old table, or add character to a plain table you should get a piece of glass cut to the size of the table and put some lace underneath. Here's a picture of what we've done to my mother's table with a large piece of Brussel's Lace.



In this case the table wasn't old, in fact it was brand new. However seeing as the table is pine, which marks easily, this was the perfect way to protect it.

I've also seen this done on an old coffee table, but instead of lace there were old black & white family photographs underneath the glass - a wonderful way of displaying your photos!

We got the glass from our table from Martin Begley Glass, Co. Limerick
063/9 07 44 but most Glass Glazers will do the same.

We use to do that at Christmas with the cards, it's a great way to display them without having them falling down every time a door opens.
