Sometimes you get that piece of furniture that not even sanding or painting can cover the flaws. This end table I thought was a score at only $3 but the top had some water damage. The mdf had bubbled and raised so I figured- no problem I'll just sand it down paint and it will be good to go! Well NO it had other plans the paint could not hide all its flaws so decoupage to the rescue.
