DIY Teen Bedroom Project Ideas | Tile Table Update

Looking for DIY Teen Bedroom Project Ideas? Check out this cool way to update using glass beads as tiles. We found ours at the dollar store. What and easy and fun idea. Follow these easy step-by-step instructions to learn how to make a cool table for a teenagers bedroom.

Project List & Cost Estimates:

  • Two side tables, on hand
  • 5 cans of spray paint, about $20
  • Sand paper/sanding block, on hand
  • Blue latex paint, on hand
  • 11-12 bags of small glass gems, $12
  • Clear, water-based polyurethane, on hand
  • Craft glue, on hand
  • Pourable 32 oz. resin kit, about $17 (I used a 40% coupon at the craft store)
  • Total project cost for two tables: about $39 and up

 

Step 1: First, I prepped the tables for paint.

I wiped each table clean with a damp cloth and then I lightly sanded the surfaces with a fine grit sanding block. I used another clean cloth to remove the dust after sanding. 
spraypaint tip
Prop up each leg of each table using a tack nail. This keeps the leg high so it will not stick to the surface below when painted.

Step 2: I spray painted each table white.
