Glass top tables are attractive enough but they are a pain to keep clean, at least that's what I think! Seems that no matter how much you clean, wipe, dig into the corners, you always end up with glass smears...I know I'm a perfectionist....but those little imperfections bother me!

I had this side table that matched the sofa and armchair in our sunroom, never could get it perfect!
This picture was taken one Christmas which explains the Santa figurine and snow on the ground outside!!!

I found a piece of cardboard that fits the underside of the glass piece perfectly. Grabbed my scrap booking paper, an old book, my box of labels, some pressed leaves, glue and ....
came up with this:

The cardboard piece slides under the glass and is held by the framing of the table. 
I may add some old pics too, in time, when I get around to it....ha!!!
Fun, attractive and practical at the same time...

  1. Hi there, just thought I would let you know that I love your table.. I love anything that has sentimental value and memories.. this is perfect!

  2. Great idea, and easy to change the design...

  3. Mandy, that's a great idea! You can really personalize the table and make it fit your design. I love it!

  4. That's a nice, creative idea for coming up with a solution to the dust and fingerprints on glass! And it's a great way to add sentimental items to everyday life.

    Thanks for linking to Potpourri Friday. Your participation made a more successful party. I appreciate you!

  5. Love the quick and easy transformation! Looks great!! Visiting from Shabby Creek Cottage link party.

  6. Oh you are a clever girl. I will be featuring door decor this week but maybe you could submit this again so I can feature it next week because I agree with the whole glass thing and this is a great solution to a common problem.

  7. Wow-what a great idea! This would be a great way to camoflauge my kids fingerprints on our glass table!! Thanks for sharing!! Great blog!
