I first sanded the top of the table and applied a walnut stain. Then I painted the legs with Annie Sloan paint. It was great because with the chalk paint there is no need to sand. Next I printed the old pictures of all of my grandparents in black and white or sepia tone. I then applied decoupage to the back of them and placed them on the top of the table. I also used a few scrapbook embellishments. Then I simply applied decoupage over the whole top, covering all of the pictures. Lastly I cleaned the glass really well and placed it on top. I am giving this to my parents as an anniversary gift, so I am really proud of it!
Even without the glass you could easily apply the photos to the top of a table as long as you protect it with the decoupage. Then you will have a great family heirloom!
