Revamped Geometric Side Table

DIY Geometric Side Table

For the past couple years, we’ve had this wood side table that’s just a little too boring for my taste! It’s been an eye sore long enough and so I decided to give this little guy new purpose and meaning. Alas, our Geometric Side Table!

Contact Paper

1. Clean the surface of your side table 2. Measure and cut your contact paper accordingly. 3. Carefully apply the contact paper to your side table surface. 4. Repeat until all sides are complete!

Contact paper is such an easy and affordable way to revamp furniture pieces. It’s also equally as easy to remove if you grow tired of the color or layout! The geometric design is the perfect way to give our side table that new and fresh look!

Are you fans of contact paper or do you just go straight to paint?!

    Looks SO GOOD. I recently tried applying some just to foam board and it had a million and one bubbles : Couldn’t smooth it out for the life of me! In that sense I do prefer paint, but for geometric accents like you did here, the contact paper is a *perfect* choice. LOVE this idea, Lidy!

      Thanks Amy – you are such a sweetie :) Yes, the dreaded bubbles can be a pain! For smaller projects like this, it’s easier to work with. But it’s definitely a challenge the bigger the project gets!

      Thanks again for your kind words!

    I LOVE contact paper too but never would thought to pick out the pattern you chose. It goes perfectly against the wood and looks amazing!! Now I just need to find a thrifted square accent table…. Pinned :)

      Aw, thanks so much Katie! It was a lot of fun experimenting with the pattern, so glad you like it :) Good luck thrifting and be sure to share pictures if you revamp a side table of your own – would love to see it!
