New table? Not Quite…

Do you ever just need a change?  Well, I do.  My room is sort of small, well…at the very least it is jam-packed with furniture so I am limited as to what I can move around and where.  With that said, I got the urge to change my guided reading table.  It is bright yellow…and had had some abuse/paint/stains.  I was at TJ Maxx the other day and saw this patterned self adhesive shelf liner- SOLD.  I used my prep time today to cover my yellow table to now look like this:
 Ignore the mess and clutter (no, I am not a hoarder)… and ignore the animal print cover on the chair (left over from Jungle
 The print looks darker in the pics than it really is.
Below is what the table looked like before.  Of course, the liner is removable and leaves no residue.  And in this picture, it looks A LOT cleaner than it is in
The two rolls of shelf liner were only $5.99!  It took almost both rolls from the pack, but a new (looking) table for less than 6 bucks…now that’s a deal!
Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!  YAY!


  1. I love that! What a great idea! I'm going to be on the look-out for that stuff! I also like the animal print chair!!! 🙂 Have a great Friday!

  2. Oh my gosh! I have the same yellow table. I just got it and really regret getting yellow. It shows every little finger print and pencil mark. It makes me crazy! I have to wipe it down every day. I would love to cover it, but since it is brand new I think my principal would have a cow if I did! I'll have to give it some time!

  3. Cool table! How clever… I too teach first grade in the smallest room ever, and I can't get rid of any of the much needed furniture. Thanks for going for it then sharing the outcome. I am now not so nervous to try this!

  4. I love that you took the time to share this! I too teach first grade in a very small classroom with way too much furniture that I can't get rid of! I will have to try this! Thanks so much for snapping a photo of the amazing transformation!

    1. I haven’t removed it from the table, but I have from other similar surfaces and it came right off with very little residue (which was easily cleaned off with GooGone)
      Hope that helps!
