The table is GREAT! I haven't done much decoupage so I don't have any tips - but I love the idea!

amanda

Holy. Crap. (Am I allowed to say that word on here?) That is amazing, bubbles or no bubbles.

Amie Bringhurst

I don't know from experience but I've heard a blow dryer can be used to smooth them out when the bubbles appear.

Stacey

Wow....that is awesome! You have some really great ideas. I only know about using a needle/exacto as you have already done...sorry I am not more help. :)

Dawn

Your table looks fab! There is a great fabric decoupage tutorial over at: http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=NIGHTSTAND

She has some great tips!

Sandy

I am amazed! That is awesome, and a huge undertaking for your first decoupage piece. You should be really proud of yourself! And, I was excited about the drawer I did in my sewing room!

Amy Hodge

This is really adorable! I've never done decoupage before, but I'm willing to bet that little girls don't care too much about bubbles. :)

Blakely

What a great table! Amazing! I have done decoupaging once and I got bubbles too.

Channing

That is fantastic! What a lovely idea. I am new to modge podge but I had a lot fewer bubbles with outdoor modge podge than my indoor glitter stuff. It was thicker and went on more smoothly. Someday maybe I'll even finish my project and post pictures. I can't wait to see pictures of your whole room.

liz

wow! the table is BEAUTIFUL!

Amber

Wow - that table is amazing and looks like quite a lot of work! I think fabric is hard to decoupage but your table looks great.

Terriaw

I still haven't tried decoupage, but this table is so cute! Awesome for a play room.

Kath

That looks marvelous! I'd love to know what sort of fabrics you used. I have an old chair that would look great with a design like this on the seat, you've definitely inspired me!

Mia

So pretty & perfect for a little girl!

I've only ever decoupaged small things before so I don't have any good information to share, but I just wanted to let you know what a great table you've created!

I think I can help, Jess. I did my first decoupage projects in the 1970's. Ah, with age comes wisdom, I guess. :-) Anyway, I used a very fine pin to prick the bubble spots and then continued smoothing those areas. I had a roller I used that helped smooth out bubbles, plus I worked from the center to the outer edge of a project and that continues to move the little air bubbles to the edge and they disappear easily at the edge of whatever you are decoupaging. The table is absolutely cool!!! Makes me think I should give that old decoupage technique a try on a little table that I have that needs an "update". Considering how cool (that word alone tells you I was a young woman in the 70's) the table is, I can hardly wait to see pictures of the entire room!!!
