A New Look for a Side Table Set

I found these side tables at the Salvation Army recently.  In addition to being outdated, they were in rough condition.  They don't really have anything in common besides their leather tops, but I decided to  make them a coordination pair by "mod-podging" (decoupaging) them with the same paper.

I probably could have painted over the leather tops (chalk paint covers pretty much any surface) but it was the perfect opportunity to use this vintage postcard wrapping paper.

After decoupaging the paper onto the leather tops, I painted the tables a taupe shade of Chalk Paint, sanded them, and applied a furniture wax.  I really like the look of them.  They are very unique...definitely one-of-a-kind!
