Pedestal Table with Overlays

February 20, 2012

Hello hello, happy Monday to you! Hope your weekend was swell, we didn’t do much other than little things around the house, but I did finish up an end table project I started a week ago.

I was able to complete this makeover with a product I heard about last year called Overlays. This fretwork product is so smart and I was dying to try it out – it allows you to take an ordinary piece of furniture and personalize it with a patterned design to turn it into a one of a kind.  Hello, speaking my language now.

So I found a little black pedestal end table at Marshalls last year for $49 – a solid wood piece and a classic accent table, but I wanted to jazz it up.  I sent a request to the innovative ladies behind Overlays to customize a Lola pattern for me and within a week I had my custom sized overlay shipped to my door.  With it I was able to take this basic black end table and add that extra detail to make it my own personalized pedestal table.

It was a quick makeover, first I primed the table with my fave spray primer Zinsser Cover Stain and also primed the overlay with the same.  When it was dry I spray painted the fretwork overlay with a favorite golden spray paint.

Next, I painted the table with Sherwin Williams Pro Classic enamel paint in ‘Oyster Bay’ and when it was dry trimmed my Lola Overlay and used Q-tips and Liquid Nails to attach the trim  to the table (the white is the back, the gold is the front).

There are so many patterns to choose from, here are just a few.

Many fit existing IKEA furniture, plus you can customize them with a special order to the dimensions of your piece.  Here are a few more examples of how you can apply fretwork to furniture or mirrors to make it a focal point in your space.

  3. Wow, these are amazing. I would love to use these on a dresser.

  4. I shared this giveaway on facebook.

  5. heather f says:

    I love the idea of the overlay inside a window. we have one side window that looks out at a neighbors ugly roof. this would be a great soluntion to let in light, but have more “flair”

  6. Alisa D. says:

    I would use it on a dresser in my daughter’s room to add some fun. The overlays are such a great idea!

  7. Ann says:

    My guest room Ikea headboards NEED this. I live in DC and have lots of friends/family come to visit during the spring and summer. I am always a little embarrassed about how boring my guest room is so I have been working on jazzing it up. This would be the crowning touch!

  8. abercrombie wife says:

    I would use o’verlays for my daughters dresser. She has the white malm dresser from Ikea and it leaves a little to be desired. O’verlays would do the trick for sure!

  9. Jennifer says:

    Ooooh! I just aquired an old dresser that I will be repainting and this would be a neat idea to add a little flare! Pick me!

  10. Jordann says:

    Just bought a hutch from craigslist and would love to try the overlays on the cabinet doors to replace the outdated wicker insets!

  18. Jessica says:

    I have this exact same table in my entry hall! Now, I’d love to have an overlay and reproduce your pretty update!

  19. Beautimous! You took a nice, but plain pedestal table and gave her a new, modern look. Love it! My mom is pushing my old dresser on to us b/c she wants to get rid of it. I think it might be a candidate for overlays on the drawers. It actually belonged to my mom in the 60s, so it has a pretty dated look to it right now.

  20. Korby says:

    I would use it on a plain jane dresser. What fun!

  21. Astor Taylor says:

    love your result. i would personalize a dresser for my granddaughter!

  22. Jackie says:

    I love the new table! I have some nightstands that could use some detailing.

  23. Linda says:

    I would make a pedestal table similar to yours for my new granddaughter’s nursery. I love your table!!

  24. Sada says:

    So cool!! I would love to use this on a staircase or on our outdoor concrete entryway!

  25. Erin says:

    The toilet is always such an eyesore. I would love to try and use the overlays on the toilet tank to spruce it up!

  26. Lauren says:

    Wow – love the new table! I would love to use the overlays to give a dresser a more modern update!

  27. Amanda says:

    My husband and I are planning on building a console table for our entry way, and I’d love to use one of these for it!

  28. Terrie M says:

    First — I love what you did! That is a great way to change up that table. I am new to overlays so I think I would use it on a piece of furniture or a mirror! I don’t know! I just think this overlay stuff is AWESOME!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. Mrs. W says:

    I’ve been scouting out my local Home Goods for a pedestal table just like that! And I love the overlays and really want to win. I would use them on an old mirror or perhaps be a total copy cat and use it on my future pedestal table!

  30. Annette says:

    My mind went immediately to using Overlay on a window (as in a grille). I think that could look spectacular!

  31. Carolyn D says:

    Would love to update that Ikea college furniture we bought for our daughter. The perfect solution.

  32. Nicole says:

    Oh! I’ve been eyeing up purchasing an Overlay for a while now. My son’s dresser could use a makeover, and these would be perfect!

  33. Susanne says:

    Very pretty! I would use them on a dresser:)

  34. kristin says:

    I would love to jazz up the mirror in our foyer. Or my husband’s boring nightstand!

  35. Chuma says:

    I would love to use them on a mirror!

  36. Kristen says:

    I love the look of overlays….and I could think of 20 ways to use them. I’d start with a textured wall behind my bed.

  37. Bernie says:

    I have a huge mirror that is just screaming to be “Jazzed-Up”…..and flaw that needs to be covered. Or maybe the plain jelly cupboard that has been partially painted for 20 years…..I think I need to finish that project!

  38. Amanda Eck says:

    holy moly!! This is by far the best Overlays project I’ve seen! You knocked it out of the park girl!!

  39. sarah says:

    oh my i need this product. i have a cabinet that is screaming for a touch of something, and this would be way better than painting it on.


  40. Tiffany says:

    That pedestal table really turned out beautifully. Some of the pieces I’ve seen are a little much for me, but this is really nice.

  41. Definitely on a mirror! I have two boring mirrors in our master bathroom that need to be refinished and this would be the perfect added something to make them interesting!

  42. Tracy says:

    The pedestal table looks fantastic. I’m not sure what I would use the overlays for, but I would find something that needed a little extra jazz.

  43. Sherrell Cordas says:

    Ikea Hemnes Dresser. Nice dresser for the price, but another Ikea Hack. I just painted mine Hacienda Tile from Valspar. Against a charcoal grey wall, it’s awesome. But even now when I look at it, there is something missing. Would an overlay be awesome for the dresser? Holy crap yes!

  44. Cathy says:

    Those overlays are brilliant. I would use them on a small accent wall or my daughters dresser which is so boring right now.

  45. Sunne says:

    These could spice up my bathroom vanity!!

  46. Erin says:

    I would definitely use Overlays to snazz up a thrifted bedside table!

  47. Susan A. says:

    This is a great product! I would use it on my hallway cabinets, which are in desperate need of a makeover.

  48. Kelsey says:

    I would love to use overlays for a mirror I have. Such a neat idea!

  49. Celeste says:

    I love this! What a great way to dress up a piece of furniture!

  50. Amy Bell says:

    I have been dying to try these out on my plain-jane bathroom cabinets!

  51. Amy Bell says:

    I have been dying to try these out on my plain-jane bathroom cabinets!

  52. Laura says:

    Wow! These are fun! I would use it on a bookcase.

  53. Kathy says:

    Love the greek key pattern!! I would use it to jazz up a plain white mantle that we have. And the prices seem very reasonable too. Thanks for sharing.

  54. WendyK says:

    I’ve had my eye on Overlays for some time. I’d probably use them on a dresser, though I love the way you customized your table. Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. sarah says:

    I would use these on my kids’ dresser, we are in the process of updating their boy / girl nursery into a big kid room and man, it is hard to find things neutral enough for them!

  56. Kara Moorhouse Bell says:

    Awesome! Off the top of my head I can think of a few places; master bedroom dressers, entry mirror, office wall, office mirror, office cabinets, bathroom vanity….These will be fun!

  57. Debbie says:

    Love these unique ideas! I would use the overlay that is on the third step from the top and place them on two side panels to make a interest creating wine cabinet. I posted a like of the Overlays on Facebook this morning. Hope I win!

  58. SaraAnne says:

    I love the Grace cutouts. I’d use them on my kitchen cabinets!

    Posting in facebook right now

  60. Stacey says:

    I have been dying to do something on the window in my bathroom (it’s one of those slightly opaque styles you can’t see through.) This would be the perfect detail!

  61. Heather says:

    Love this! I’d use it for an end table that I’ve been wanting to tackle ;)

  62. Karen says:

    I love the simplicity of your pedestal table! I would probably use an overlay on a dresser and always have loved the Greek key design!

  63. laxsupermom says:

    Wow! The table looks great! I love what a rich look the Overlays give to a basic piece of furniture. I’m working on a bookcase right now that could really use the benefit of instant architecture that Overlays lend to furniture. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

  64. Christa says:

    I want to use it on the bathroom mirror to make it nicer (currently it’s one of those without a frame…)

  65. Holly says:

    I’ve got an IKEA Malm dresser that could use some character. Thanks, Kate, for this opportunity!

  66. Kristen says:

    Love this piece! I would use them on the tops I’m making for two cast-iron garden-table bases I scored this weekened!

  67. Virginia Mom says:

    These overlays are beautiful and there seems to be no end to their creative use. Props to the smart ladies who came up with this idea and best wishes for their success! There’s a boring bookcase here, just crying out to be trimmed up with one of those fabulous patterns. Beautiful job on that pedestal table, too!

  68. Jen in NM says:

    I’d love to Harperize a Rast dresser. I’m thinking of the dresser Kate made for a friend’s nursery in two shades of light sage green – something like that for the base color and to paint the O’verlays.

  69. Courtney says:

    I didn’t know these even existed! I love your particular color combo for your pedestal table — such a great detail!

  70. Marley says:

    I actually bought a Rast Ikea Dresser this weekend and am going to paint the dresser white lacquer and then use O’livia overlays and paint them gold. This master piece is going to go in my guest room next to my green and white bamboo Matouk Bedding. I can’t wait to get started!!!!

  83. Chelssya says:

  90. Laura says:

  95. Stacy says:

    I love the overlays! I have this drab little cabinent that has 2 doors on the front and a slide tray that holds my lap top. It is basic black and functions as a end table in my living room. It is in serious need of some jazzing up and the overlays with a new paint job would beautify this piece! Thank you for the opportunity!

    If I win I will use this on my daughter’s dresser drawer fronts. Love your table, Kate!

  103. Michelle says:

    I just looked at Overlays last week! We bought Billy bookcases to put in our living room (inspired by your built-ins) and added the doors for some concealed storage. The doors are a little plain and something from Overlays would give it a little zing!

  104. Kjerstin says:

    I’ve been wanting to try it on a dresser for a while now. Great stuff!

  105. cdrunner says:

    I would use to transform an old dresser. I love these!!

    Linked to Twitter :)

  117. Missy G. says:

    I have a dresser that I got when I first moved into an apartment about 10 years ago. It was from an unfinished furniture store, and when I told the salesperson that I wanted to stain it mahogany, he gave me a can of stain. Or so I thought. Dang thing ended up just blah brown, and more like a paint than a stain. I have been wanting to do something to change up the look for quite a while. This would be perfect for it!

  118. Michelle says:

    I would totally use the Overlays on a dresser!

  119. Kathleen says:

    I’d love to fancy up a plain Ikea dresser!

  120. Cortney says:

  123. Monica says:

    Liked and shared on Facebook. Thanks!

  124. Yanira DelValle says:

    Oh I would luurrvve to dress up a little dresser in my living room.

    Inspired idea! I’d incorporate them in my new grandson’s nursery. Thanks for the give away…..

  129. JUURI says:

    Create 2 matching mirrors for beside the bed! I thought for sure it’d have to buy each individual piece somewhere and stick it all on. This is a dream!

  130. Ann V. says:

    Oooo….this is SO cute! Love the color of the table and the overlay you chose. I could use some fretwork on a plain dresser or even to highlight one kitchen cabinet!

  131. Ann V. says:

    Shared the link on Facebook.

  132. This is amazing!!! You did such a fantastic job… I LOVE.

  133. Nicole says:

    I would totally copy this post and add it to a pedestal table. I have been searching for the right table already!

  134. Michele Wesdock says:

    Looks beautiful! I love this product and the service is great. We had a cheap oak gas fireplace with a cheesy wooden appliqué on it that I thought was a lost cause. I painted the fireplace white, pulled off the appliqué and replaced it with a custom sized Ov’rlay and it looks fantastic. It looks like a whole new fireplace and completely changes the look of the room.

  135. Emily says:

    My daughter’s IKEA Hemnes dresser would be so cute with some overlays! What a great idea to make your piece extra special.

  136. Gayle Erwin says:

    I woud totally use them on new built in bookcases, for the new window seat. It would almost be as cute as your table.

  137. Anastasia says:

    I would live to win this, I would use it on my Ike’s EXPEDIT.

  138. Cindy says:

    What a beautiful way to customize a boring piece of furniture. I really need two side table in my master bedroom and have stalled trying to find affordable interesting pieces. I see so many possibilities with Overlays!

  139. these are so cool!! now I’m off to scour my house for places to use them! (and love your new header)

  140. I’m thinking…. maybe on the front of the glass doors on our media cabinet!

  141. Cindy says:

    I linked the contest info on Facebook!

  142. I would love to win this! We’re planning a huge reno all over the house and I’m sure I’d find somewhere fantastic to use one! Maybe on the entryway locker we’re planning on making?

  143. This is so incredibly brilliant that I just can’t stand it. Gorgeous, Kate! I think you crashed their website, because I can’t get it to load. I’m definitely going to be checking it out later, though. Incredible idea!

  144. Jackie G says:

    I would overlay my IKEA malm dresser! its so plain looking in our master bedroom.

  145. Amanda says:

    I’ve been eyeing these since they were introduced. I love that you a) ordered a custom design and b) used it on something besides an Ikea product. I think I would use them to co-ordinate a few craigslist finds into beside tables for our bedroom. Thanks!

  146. Whitney @ Diary of a Preppy Mom says:

    Oh how I would love to win!!! We are currently trying to turn an antique buffet into an Entertainment Center and I think this would be the perfect finishing touch:)

  147. Jen Migonis says:

    Amazing, Kate…. it looks seriously fabulous.

    I would use the Overlay to redo a piece of furniture… but I can’t decide what, maybe a dresser or a set of nightstands.

  148. Whitney @ Diary of a Preppy Mom says:

    I tweeted about it here! :)!/DiaryPreppyMom

  149. Mandy says:

  153. jen says:

    I have a dresser that could definitely use a little sprucing up with one of those overlays! LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea:)

  154. Keely says:

    I’d use the Gigi ones to doll up my Ikea bedside tables. It’s such an easy and pretty solution! And I love the Gigi pattern.

  155. Kristin says:

    Would it be totally bizarre to put it on the wall under a chair rail?

  156. Amanda S. says:

    I think I would add it to some open shelving to add some pop! Never heard of this before your post- thank you so much for introducing me to it!

  157. PK says:

  167. Megan says:

    First off I love you makeover! Your photos are to die for. I appreciate them so much more now that I am a blogger. Your photos always look like a Better Homes & Garden set. I think I might make over a dresser sitting in the basement.

  168. There’s an entry table I’m convincing my hubby to build and would love to add these to it. And there’s a mirror I have that would great with these

  169. Pam says:

    Wow! The possibilities are endless, especially since sizes can be custom ordered. How about a beautification project for an ugly door? Or, adding it to a plain jane frame? etc., etc., etc…………Kudos to Danika and Cheryle. Thanks for a great product.

  170. Lesley says:

    I love these. I found these a while back and can’t wait to get my hands on some. I am planning to use them on my bedroom dresser. I love how you used them on your table great job as always. Lesley

    Oh, how I love Overlays! Where to use? where Can’t you use is the question. I have an old tired bathroom vanity that I’d love to update. I also have a Malm that would look so much better Overlayed! I hope I get lucky! Also, I am now following on Facebook!

  175. Cindy says:

    Oh, and I am posting this on my facebook. And I promise not to be jealous if one of my friends on fb links up and wins. Spread the love, right ?

  176. One of my favorite sites (you) and one of my favorite products paired up! Match made in heaven! I’d love to do an entry way table!

  177. Sonya says:

    I would use the caci on the front of a dresser and paint it blue or red. Very cool site! Thanks.

    ALSO.. your photography rocks. Can you do a blog day on taking perfect pictures of your home? I find this one of the most difficult subject matters. Is it my camera.. or me?

  178. Malar says:

    I would love to win the gift certificate. I have many projects lined up. I can definitely use in 2 of my projects in mind.
    Let me check my luck :)

  179. Teresa says:

    Beautiful product. I would use it to make a three part mirrored screen for a dark corner in my Living Room. It would reflect the available light, but not be too “loud”. I really hope I win!
    P.S. The table is “centsational”!

  180. Taletha says:

    I would put them on the wall as a headboard in our small bedroom. The hard part would be deciding which pattern!

  181. Erin Macdonald says:

    I would love to use these on a foyer table!

  182. Susan Nowakowski says:

    I would use them on my daughters existing bedroom furniture – they are so in need of a make over to help spice things up a bit!! How exciting! Susan

  183. Nikki says:

    I would use them as a wall treatment in our bedroom. Super cool!

  184. Patricia F. says:

    These are amazing…oh, the possibilities! I’d use mine to customize the cheapest big mirrors I can find. I have a wall in dire need of mirrors but can’t afford the big, beautiful ones I drool over. I can totally see making my dream come true with these!

  185. Bharati says:

    I would love to use these as chair rail for a while. It would look awesome as the frame for my builder grade mirrors.

  186. Patricia F. says:

    I have shared this link on Facebook!

  187. Michelle P says:

    I’m thinking something in our entry way!

  188. Bharati says:

    Thanks for the give away

  189. Kelsey says:

    Just heard about “overlays” website not too long ago and love seeing all the different applications! I don’t think I have a piece of furniture on hand to apply one of these too, but would have no problem finding something…would love a fun sideboard!

  190. these are gorgeous! count me in! Love the side table :)

  191. Amber says:

    This is just what I have been looking for! I would use them on a dresser/tv stand.

  192. Laura says:

    Love them! I would add them to the risers of my basement steps as soon as I finish ripping up the carpet and painting them. It would be beautiful!

  193. Veronica says:

    I have the World’s Ugliest Mirror Tiles in my (ugh) paneled family room. The tiles have been stuck there so long they will take the finish off the paneling if we remove them. I think covering them with an overlay would make them look a little more…intentional. :)

  194. bhh says:

    I have been eying O’verlays for quite some time — would love love love to apply to rather plain armoire!

  195. Karen says:

    I pulled an old mirror out of our attic yesterday. I’m now ready to redo it and use it in our powder room. This is a great idea!

  196. April D. says:

    I love O’verlays and Danika’s blog is really great too! I have a coffee table in need of a makeover.

  197. First of all, I LOVE your table!!! And secondly, I am so excited to learn about these!! I know exactly what I’d use them on if I could- I’m wanting to mirror kitchen cabinet doors and I’d put these over the mirrors. However, that’s a project for when I own a house again, so for now, if I win this giveaway, I’ll stick them over a mirror I’ve got in my dining room instead.

  198. pat smith says:

    I love how these glam up a basic piece – dresser, table, planter box. Now my eyes are open for spots to put these overlays. Great post!

  199. Anne says:

    the table looks great! I have the same one in dark brown and have thought for many months it just needs a little “something”. Fun giveaway!

  200. Makeesha says:

    I have a plain gray dresser that has been begging for some special attention! I think some fretwork is just the answer Ive been looking for! Thanks for introducing this great product!

  201. Leslie C. says:

    I need to re-do my guest bedroom and overlays would be perfect for either the dresser or bedside tables. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  202. Makeesha says:

    Shared this on facebook!

  203. Megbeast says:

    I’ve already had my eyes on these to use in place of crown molding in a room. Thought they would look nicer then just a wall stencil. Love these!

  204. Erin R. says:

    I’d love to use O’verlays on a pair of dressers in my bedroom! In their previous life, they were dorm furniture — the ubiquitous modular/stacking kind that nearly every college dormitory is furnished with. A local college donated some of their excess stock to the thrift store down the block from me, and I scored them for half-price (only $60 for the pair!) The honey-blond wood is ugly, as I’m sure you can imagine, but they are SO solid and well-made (dovetail joints and all!) I can’t wait to refinish them when I start my bedroom makeover this spring! Hooray for giving old, unwanted furniture a new lease on life!

  205. Suzi Purdy says:

    To jazz up my old dresser for the guest room. Love this product….so cool!

  206. Astor Taylor says:

    linked to Facebook!

  207. Ellen says:

    Very cute table! I have a pretty long wish O’verlay wish list, but I think priority #1 is to hang some parallel to the old popcorn ceiling in my rented gift shoppe space with pretty fabric or paper showing through the fretwork, to pretty it up in a temporary way. The winners will be lucky ducks, whoever they are!!

  208. Liz says:

    I would use them to create some Rast Hacked nightstands!

  209. Kirstin says:

    The table looks beautiful!! I can envision the overlays now on a dresser I have that is sorely in need of some updating. It is a nice piece of furniture, but it definitely needs a fresh look, and this product would certainly help!

  210. Megan says:

    Shared this on twitter…@cherrylimebride

  211. Megan says:

    I want to redo old Ikea dressers I bought and use them as nightstands in our master bedroom.

  212. RoxanneK says:

    I’ve been trying for some time to think of something creative to do with my daughters sliding mirrored closet doors. Its not in the budget to replace them yet, so I’m thinking the overlays in the Anne style, with custom sizing, might be just the thing. Kate, any other ideas on sliding mirrored doors?

  213. shalini says:

    Thanks for introducing the product.I have an empty wall in need of attention.Would love to use it as an artwork.

  219. I just bought a pair of Lack floating shelves and was try to think of ways to make them a little special…..this just might be it! Especially if I get a gift certificate! Lol.

  220. For my hum-drum bedroom dresser. These are so cool!

  221. Tagati says:

    What a great makeover for a plain pedestal table. I’ve seen other ideas for using the Overlays, but yours was the best so far.

    I’d luv to add some spice to a drop leaf table using this product.

    Wonderful prezzie!

  222. Peggy says:

    I’d use it on an old, sad dresser that I’ve been dying to make over.

  223. Jac says:

    OOOHhhh… I have a dresser that is DYING for some overlays! Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

  232. Jennifer R says:

    Oohhh, too many things to do with the overlays! I like the mirror a lot! My daughter’s room is in a need of a makeover too so I could see myself using them on her dresser to spruce that up and maybe on her headboard too.

  233. Thanh says:

    So brilliant! I would use it to freshen up a front door!

  234. Amanda says:

    Your table looks Ahhh-Mazing :)
    If I were to win this lovely give-away, I would use the overlays on my little ladybug’s room makeover…she’ll be two this summer and as we start trying for baby #2, we want to give our buggy a big girl room makeover!

  235. Chanda says:

    I just bought the godmorgon bathroom vanity from ikea. I’m not sure I love the finish as much as I thought I would so I’m thinking of painting it. Overlays on the front would take it to a new level. Hmmmmm….. lol..

  236. Sara says:

    Your table looks awesome! I would love to use the overlays to create a dressy buffet in my kitchen.

  237. Becky C says:

  243. Gina says:

    Your table looks great! I’ve never seen Overlays before but I’d love to win so I could try them out for myself. I have a very plain bookcase that would look great all spiffed up on the sides!

  244. Becca says:

    I have a console table that needs some help!

  245. Angela says:

    I saw these overlays several months ago and have been thinking about them ever since. I would like to redo 2 bedside tables.

  246. Julie says:

    I would love to use them to makeover a small boring dresser I was given several years ago.

  247. Ash says:

    I’d probably use them to fancy up a couple of Rasts to replace my old bedside tables!

  248. Lisa E says:

    Overlays – Love this idea! I am on the hunt for a dresser or buffet to paint for the living room (to put behind the couch) and I would use the circles that overlap to class it up!

  249. Michelle Johnson says:

    What a great idea! I’ve got an Aneboda armoire thingy from IKEA that has long plastic panels in each of the two front doors. I was planning to stencil them, but I’d love to put an O’verlay in the panels instead. I think it would look wonderful!

  250. Margie says:

    Your little table looks great! I love the gold with the grey! I have the perfect dresser that is need of a serious re-do. These would be the perfect thing to make it look updated and special!

  251. Michelle Johnson says:

    I just spread the word on Facebook!

  252. Kelly v. says:

    I would love to use overlays on our coffee table … it needs a change & these would be great new details with a new color!

  253. Cerita says:

    That table was decent before, but now it is fabulous! I definitely would use the Overlays for my 2 lamps in my living room…they are simple and need a bit of excitement! So excited to try them out!

  254. Margie says:

    I posted the link to Twitter :)

  255. Kristin says:

    Thank you so much for this idea! There are so many things I can do this to in my house to add just a little more pizzazz! Thanks!

  256. Lauren H says:

    Oh. My. Goodness! Kate, I love what you designed using the Overlays. Perfect combination to make that simple table something special.

    And, I’m so excited b/c just last night I was frantically scouring the internet for something special for a china cabinet makeover I have been planning and I think Overlays will work fabulously.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  257. Lara says:

    I have a Malm dresser and 2 Malm nightstands that I am dying to use these on!

  258. heather p says:

    These would be fun to use on walls or on a canvas to put on the wall even! I’m sure I can find some furniture to spruce up in a house full of hand me downs!

  259. 1 – I would use the overlays to makeover my dresser. I have an year old Malm dresser that is in desperate need of a makeover. I’d also like to makeover my fish tank stand. It is a big eyesore in my living room and something like these overlays could really make it a design win instead of a design fail.

  260. I’ve also posted your link on my facebook page for an additional entry.

  261. I meant to say I have an EIGHT year old Malm dresser. Sheesh.

  262. Morgan says:

  276. Gloria says:

    I’ve been looking at ideas to refinish my daughter’s dresser, that we’ve had since she was a baby, to re-use in a guest room. Overlays would be a perfect solution!

    I would love to use them on a few projects. a halltree and a small end table.

    I’d use it on a dresser I’ve been wanting to refinish and I think it would be great to create a piece of art with one of the patterns.

  297. Kelly says:

    I am going to use an overlay instead of the vent covers. I cannot wait to get rid of the plain jane return air covers. :)

  298. Pippa says:

    I’m in the middle of refinishing a chest of drawers, and one of those lovely overlays would look fabulous on the drawer fronts!

  356. Gwen says:

    Amazing! I’d love to put them under our chair rail in the dining room! They are gorgeous…

  357. Renee says:

    Would love to use these for the dresser I’m getting for our nursery.

  358. Susan says:

    Overlays: The mind reels with possibilities for this fabulous-where-have-you-been all my life, creation…”product” is just too boring a word for this innovation :-)

  359. Priscilla says:

    I have a white dresser I would love to try this with. What a great idea. Your table looks so pretty.

  360. Susan says:

    FaceBook linked

  361. Priscilla says:

    Just “liked” them on Facebook!

  362. Wendy Larson says:

    Hello. I would use them on the cabinet front of a slider table I just bought from a thrift store. My kitchen is tiny, so my table is in my livingroom and the cabinet hides it when not in use. It needs a little love. :)

  363. Jacqueline says:

    I have so many projects I can use these on. A table, dresser, mirror … the list goes on and on!

  364. Elyse says:

    Well look at you! How fancy! Love this idea.

    Thanks to you and your blog, which I have (stalked) read for about a year, I decided to start my own. Let’s just say I am even more obsessed with you now and admire you more than ever. This stuff is hard! Thank you for the inspiration:)

  365. Oh my goodness – you’ve just opened my eyes to a world of possibilities!!! I have an Ikea desk in our living room that is BEGGING for some lovely gold embellishment. Maybe greek keys?? Love it!

  366. Kristin says:

    I love how it looks on a mirror!

  367. I just Tweeted this giveaway! Fingers crossed! My desk desperately needs some overlay action!

  368. Maggie says:

    LOVE these-so many possibilities! Im going to use them to create a posh nursery-these will help tie together the second hand furniture I’m refinishing/painting ;) Thank you!!

  369. Wendy Larson says:

    Just added your link to my Facebook page! :)

  370. Deb says:

    your table looks wonderful. I love the color you chose – plus the overlay is what makes this piece look outstanding!! Such talent. Thanks for turning me on to these overlays – I am going to check them out.

  371. Robin G says:

    I would use them on my daughters dresser. Love the fun these add!

  372. Susie Tart says:

    I’ll never look at anything the same again. Now I look at everything to see how I can change it with overlays. Awesome idea!

  373. Jamie says:

    WOW- those are lovely! I would use it to spice up a credenza I have that needs some pizazz. I might get one any way!

  374. Cathy says:

    OMG! You have created a monster. Can’t wait to try this on a piece I have had for a while.

  375. Jerri C. says:

    So many awesome things could be done with these overlays, but I would have to say, I LOVE your table and would love to do the same thing to my round end table.

  376. Amy Wolff says:

    Those are awesome… I need them for a desk I am refinishing!

  377. I bought the overlays also, and love them! Can’t wait to try other projects!

  378. Cheryl B. says:

    I would put the overlays on my mirror hanging over the fireplace.

  379. Lindsay says:

    I am building a new house…the possibilities are endless. I love it on a table and on a mirror.

  380. Ann E says:

    I’m totally planning on using these on my MALM desser from Ikea!! Would love the GC! Thanks!

  381. Irina L says:

    This is awesome. Boring dresser gets a fix.

  382. Ann E says:

    Shared on twitter @aenderle. Thanks!

  383. Suzanne says:

    I’d love to put some Overlays on my daughters dresser to jazz it up. We are redoing her bedroom in purple, so maybe a navy blue would be fun w/ overlays accent.

  384. sofia says:

    I would use this on a side window facing our neighbors for a bit more privacy

  385. Bonnie P says:

    Oh these are lovely with so many possibilities. Thanks for the chance. Maybe I’d use them on the edge of my dining table or by something new to try it on.

  386. Kim says:

    I have the perfect cabinet in my foyer that needs a little more pizazz! These overlays would definitely do the trick!

  387. meagan says:

    we have a dresser just begging for this treatment!

  388. Summer says:

    The overlay adds a beautiful detail to your table. I would love to try it on the front of a chest of drawers!

  389. Christine says:

    I’m in need of some bedside tables. Maybe I’ll find some thrift store beauties to embellish!

  390. Linda says:

    I’ve been planning on embellishing the dresser in our guest room with wood trim moulding, but this would be soooo much cooler… I’m in love!

  391. Judy Jursch says:

    I have a small dresser in one of my guest rooms that is in desperate need of jazzing up…the overlay would be just the ticket!

  392. Cynthia says:

    Very pretty!! Love the ideas.

  393. Yvette E says:

    I could jazz up my entry mirror with some and I have a dresser in my daughter’s room that can use updating.

  394. Stacy says:

    My husband is a pretty good beginning woodworker and has promised to build me a media cabinet for the tv. I would love to use some of these overlays on a simple cabinet to really make a unique piece for the living room!

  395. Fay says:

    Not sure where I’d use them, but perhaps on a bookcase in my office.

  396. Twyla Hajdukiewicz says:

    The table looks great and the Overlays may just be the answer I’ve been looking for. I’m redoing my bedroom in pale lavender with silver and crystal accents. Not only do I have two cabinets and a book case that need to be primed, painted, and blinged a bit, but I’ve been contemplating a way to add interest to the ceiling. I’m thinking the Harpers by the foot sprayed silver would be perfect for the ceiling and MUCH easier than taping and painting a border (my other idea). The large Grace squares might be perfect to transform the cabinets and the 7×14 Gracie panels could be just the trick for the cheap Target bookcase. I’d need a huge amount of the Harper to make a border on the ceiling, but I’m thinking it would look incredibly cool – especially if I use Pearl-Ex mixed with clear glaze in pale jewel colors behind each square. It would look like my room was wearing a rhinestone necklace!

  397. ohmydarlin says:

    ooh! I really want to put some on this column plant stand I have been redoing!

  398. brenda says:

    I would love to use overlay to create a one of a kind desk and dresser. I would mirror the front of my dresser drawers and layer the overlay on top of that to create a really glamourous dresser. And also add the overlay to my mod ikea desk to make more feminine and fun

  410. Rachele Slotman says:

    Love it! I would use in on my husband’s ugly and outdated dresser!

  411. Daniela says:

    Love! I have a dresser that I scored at a Goodwill and an overlay would be exactly what it needs!

    Your table looks amazing! I would use them on the ikea lack tables I have yet to put together =)

  413. Erin Q says:

    I would love to put this on my plain jane ikea dressers. they have a clear drawer front, and these would look amazing to dress this up!

  414. I absolutely love O’verlays and all the ways they can be used. I would use them on a dresser or some cabinet doors. Your project looks great!

  415. Sharon Warren says:

    I love the look of this fretwork. I am in the process of redoing a small, but main, bathroom with very drab, and unimpressive vanity. My plan was to paint vainty, but with this fretwork I could change it into something quite impressive.

  416. ericka oliver says:

    You are such an inspiration! I would definately use these on a entry table and would use it to bring color into my room. I LOVE these!

  417. Katie says:

    I would like to use them to make a unique mirror for my dining room.

  418. Caryn says:

  419. Mariana says:

    My headboard can use some of that! Beautiful!

  420. sue says:

    I am thinking that I would use this on a mirror that needs some help…the concept is brilliant!

    I have a small dresser that would definitely benefit from some overlay!

  423. ericka oliver says:

    linked on Facebook..I think.!

  424. Niki Bradley says:

    I have a bar I’m making over – I’d love to add some of the circular overlays to the front of it. Then they’d match my rad 50’s lucite chairs (with circle cutouts) a little better!

  425. Danielle L says:

    I would put a strip of overlays bordering the walls in the nursery I decorated for my sons room. All along the top! It would add such a pop and amazing detail! I would also use the credit to purchase overlays to put on my boring cb2 fresca console I have in my entryway. It needs some jazzing up! Please pick me!!! xox

  426. Danielle L says:

    I linked this to my twitter as well.!/DanielleHL

  427. Michelle says:

    Wow, a great way to add detail! I think I’d like to jazz up the breakfast area, creating a chair rail effect. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

  428. Patti says:

    I’d love to dress up my ikea dresser for my daughters room!

  429. Julie says:

    i would use a pattern on my desk

  430. Tricia says:

    I’d love the use this in my girls’ bedroom on a dresser.

  431. Tricia says:

    I linked to FB.

  432. Suzanne says:

    Really love this idea; I’m thinking kitchen cabinet doors….

  433. Rosalind says:

    I love the table! My daughter is getting ready to buy her first home and we are trying to figure out a headboard for her bed. We have been thinking about building something out of wood but she wants something different from what anyone else has. This is PERFECT!!! The designs we could make by applying this to plain wood are limitless and would be one of a kind. We would probably paint them silver to go with her linens!!! Thank you for bringing this product to our attention.

  434. Natalie says:

    Love these so much. I’m planning to use them on an orange mirror from Ikea (painted orange so they look like part of the architectural design of the mirror.)

  435. Laurel says:

    OH WOW! Love this. I would use this on my two nightstands in my master bedroom. I was going to paint a fretwork design on them in a metallic but this is so much better!

  436. Laurel says:

    I linked on FB.

  437. Helen Williams says:

    These would be great on a night stand that I want to do for my granddaughter.

  438. Sharon says:

    I love this! I have a blanket chest that I’ve owned for about 20 years and it sits in my front entry. Every 5 years or so I change the fabric on the seat and paint the chest. I would love to have the overlays for that chest!

  439. Tricia N. says:

    I would love to get my hands on these. I would put the overlay on the head board of a four poster bed I have. I want to paint the bed silver and paint the overlay gold and place it on the head board.

  440. [email protected] says:

    You are amazing! You continue to provide such wonderful resources. I’m a novice furniture refinished/painter and these overlays are amazing! Your $49 table looks more like $499! I could see them used on a headboard or a boring dresser, or a million other places! Thanks!

  441. Blair says:

    After seeing the overlay used on a mirror, I’m in love!

  442. ashley says:

    OMG…I love it…a quick makeover…but it’s lovely!

  443. Ragan says:

  444. Laura says:

    I would use the Greek key Overlay to update a sideboard in my dining room.

  445. Kay says:

    I am so stoked about these overlays! I have coveted them and even pinned them on my Pinterest Board. I just bought a new home that I take possession of on the 27th of this month and I want to use the overlays to update my bathroom vanities. I have also thought about building wooden cornices for my two LR windows and using the overlays on them. I would be thrilled to win one of the giveaways!

  446. Maria Meyers says:

    My daughter has two of the same side tables! Love the overlay to dress it up. I have a mirror that needs to be updated…an overlay would be perfect.

  447. E. says:

    Love this idea! I would use it to save a dresser that is in real need of a makeover (think rust, grime and stains from a childhood nursery). Pick me pick me :)

  448. Kelly says:

    I have bookmarked and saved the Overlays website for quite some time now. We’re planning a whole wall of Ikea Pax closets in our master bedroom and these overlays are going to transform boring Ikea into fabulous. They’d also look great on the Rast hack I am planning for a side table. Or maybe for our new baby’s nursery. That padoga would be amazing!

  449. Cindy says:

    I love the idea of putting the overlays on a mirror – what a fun and unique item!

  450. Nancy C says:

    I would love to put the cheryle overlay on my big white closet that ive had since I moved here from italy!! (15 years now?) Its an awesome condition and sturdy as hell but needs some updating! I might just take advantage of this great 15% off too!! In fact…I might wana Overlay my whole house, first the closet…then the fridge!

  451. Lisa Garner says:

    I have so many ideas – like my builder bathroom mirrors to jazz them up or I am making my daughters headboard or those crazy eyebrow windows in my office that need some sunlight filtered – (the first thoughts to pop in my head)!

  452. Tricia says:

    I would use O’verlays on two pieces of furniture….a desk and a dresser!….i LOVE this idea!!!!!

  456. Amanda C says:

    Would love to use these on a dresser I haven’t brought in from the garage yet!!! LOVE!

  457. WOW!! That looks amazing! I had heard about overlays through Pinterest, and am totally inspired by your pedestal table. That looks sooooo fantastic!

  458. I love these O’verlays!! I used some recently to anchor hooks to in a jewelry wall project here I could always use more for furniture or built-ins or to spruce up some cabinets.

  459. carol w. says:

    Looks so easy and beautiful!!! I have a dresser from my son when he was a baby that I would use the overlay on. Its just sitting in the basement waiting to be redone into a pretty bedside chest!!!

  460. Oh man, that table is too cool — and I’m crazy for those overlays!! I’d love to find a project to use them on!!! Thanks for the giveaway chance, kate!

    These are awesome! I want to add some to a grouping of mirrors.

  469. Erica says:

    I have the SAME tables, but in WHITE. By chance do you still have the measurements so I can just call them and place my own order? i LOVE how yours turned out and my pair needs some OOMPH too :D

  470. Bre says:

    I’d love to use the overlay on a small accent wall!

    I would use Overlays for our dresser drawers! Thanks so much, Anna, mattandanna at live dot com

  474. Colleen Irby says:

    I want to use Overlays on the wall. I would frame a large area behind my sofa, then paint it an accent color, and put the overlay over top, to resemble of piece of artwork.

  475. Taysha Riggs says:

    Wow! I’d never heard of these…. but I’d love to experiment with side tables I have.

  476. I’d love some to pretty up our half walls. They were hideous and had textured 80’s wallpaper on them. We ripped it off and painted them, but they could still use a little something something to make them pop!

  477. Karen says:

    I might use them in my kitchen where the backsplash would be. Thanks for the opportunity!

  478. Janny A. says:

    Oh! I love these!! Over a headboard, a mirror, a door, so many possibilities!

  479. Patti M says:

    I already have used these! On a head board and a closet door and I want more! Would love to jazz up my hall mirror.

  480. Amanda says:

    Lovely! I would dress up my daughter’s black bed or possibly trim a mirror.

  481. Lonnita says:

    This would be a great addition to the craft station I’m working on for my daughter.

  482. Erin says:

    I would use an overlay on an Ikea dresser. It will add a fun touch to our baby’s room.

  483. Amber Allen says:

    I love these! They are amazing. I would definately use them on an older piece of furnture in our breakfast room, maybe a hutch of some sort or I love the idea of a headboard being decorated in these!!!

  484. Courtney Mac says:

    I would love, love to have some O’verlays!! I am finishing a ’60s Bassett dresser and it would look fantastic with one of those babies!!

    Thanks so much!

  488. Nancy says:

    Wow Kate..These are so cool..I can’t believe how inexpensive they are..I love what you did with the table!

  489. Marriah says:

    I have a bookshelf that’s in some dire need of a makeover – This could be the perfect solution!

  490. Kristi says:

    I want to add these to an entry table and possibly over a mirror. I love them! So happy I saw this on Pinterest!

  491. Rachel says:

    Oh my gosh, I feel like I’ve been searching for something like this for a long time—but just couldn’t quite find something I LOVED! And now I’ve found it!

    The possibilities are really endless…but I would start with using the overlays on some full-length mirrors to flank our bed in the master bedroom (white frame, and white overlay).

    THEN…a similar (coordinating option on the closet doors in our master bedroom as well.

    Love love love this!

  492. beth says:

    Oh, I would use those overlays on a chest of drawers that need a re-do. Thanks for the chance to win!

  493. nari says:

    i’d use them on my dressers!

  494. Karen says:

    I have a similar pedestal table that I purchased 10 years ago from Kmart (Martha Stewart collection). I still use that table to this day and thought about painting it. This post definitely inspires me to do so. The overlay gives it an elegant touch. I would surely use it on my pedestal table. Did you have to sand it before priming?

  495. Karen says:

    Sand the table, that is.

  496. Janie says:

    I would put my gorgeous overlays on an old antique wood dresser I bought at a thrift store to use in my dining room. It would really make that piece so beautiful because it has very straight lines, nothing fancy. But I like fancy!

  497. Mary Hall says:

    I’d love to use Overlays on a vanity I recently redid. It’s waiting for that special touch, which I think this just might be it!

  498. Janie says:

    I shared this on Facebook!!

  499. erica p. says:

    I would totally use these on my IKEA Malm dresser to snazz it up!

  500. Melissa says:

    This is perfect! I have an light wood colored Ikea dresser that I can’t stain darker to match my other furniture because of the texture. Now that I found these I’m totally going to paint it dark purple (to match my room accents) and put a while overlay on the drawers. That is, when I can afford them or if I win! haha. Thanks for the giveaway!

  501. Melissa says:

    I shared this on my Twitter!

  502. I would use the overlays on a trunk that I’m refinishing.

  503. I linked to the giveaway on my facebook page.

  504. anne says:

    I’d LOVE to stick these on my kinda boring Ikea dressers!

  505. Cheryl Wingate says:

    This is a terrific idea! Love the table, and love the idea of using overlays. I’d like to try them on cabinet to “prettify” the panels on the doors, possibly cutting out the panels entirely and replacing them with the overlays. Really cool stuff!

  506. I’m thinking about using them on our nightstands. Thanks, Kate!

  507. junell says:

    I have a set of the pagoda’s for a mid century chest that I just primed. I also want to put some on my stair risers & over my door frame in my living room. Plus want to put the Olivia on my bathroom cabinet doors. Love them!

  508. AlyB says:

    I would do one of those mirrors with a cool fretwork overlay. I love the example you show on your post.

  509. I’d use it for either a mirror or a wardrobe! But most likely a mirror in my master bedroom that we’re FINALLY just finishing after 4 long years. :)

  510. Brynne says:

    I would run some strips of the O’verlays along the thick front edge of my Ikea desk!

  511. Natalie says:

    I would use on the plain Jane white Malm dresser going in my daughter’s room!! I’m dying to try these!!

  512. Annie says:

    I would use the overlay to spice up a sideboard in the dining room.

  513. Vicente says:

    I would use them on a bookcase to add some interest. Thanks.

  514. Kristen Wallen says:

    I recently purchased a 70’s record player, stereo cabinet I’m tyring into a sideboard that is in desperate need of overlays!

  515. Melissa R. says:

    I would LOVE to use Overlays on my New Year’s Resolution to try to give a makeover to a piece of furniture by myself! I think I can make an office desk look really good with Overlays!

  516. Megan says:

    I’ll have a custom Lola made to wrap around my round coffee table. I was going to just paint it white until I saw these…now it’s getting the white, the overlay and a tassel pull for the drawer. Thanks so much for this post!

  517. Beth says:

    I have a mirror in my family room that’s begging for some overlay love!

  518. Terri says:

    I would use the overlays on some furniture (dresser) that I am getting ready to paint! <3

  519. I would use it on our mantle in the living room.

  520. I have been wanting to do a project with overlays for a while now! I would used them on a dresser or an old mirror! Your table looks lovely!

  521. I just shared on Twitter!

  522. Lauren says:

    I would love to spice up a mirror in our entry!

  523. maureen says:

    I would love to use the Dorothy Draper overlays on the Rast chest!

  524. Abby says:

    I’ve been thinking about trying to use O’verlays on the sides of a bookcase.

  525. PAULA says:

    I have a very plain dresser that would make a great showcase for some overlays, and vice versa.

  526. Marilyn says:

    I’m about to install a “stock” barn door and these overlays could definitely jazz it up! Fabulous product.

  527. Janna says:

    I’m dying to try these O’verlays on my Ikea dresser that we are using as a buffet. It would really add a lot to the boring piece! My fingers are crossed…..I’d buy them, but spending $100 on making the piece better, makes me just want to go buy a new buffet! The gift certificate would be very helpful!! :D

  528. Sarah says:

    I’d love to try these on my nightstands! I’ve been admiring them for a long time!! Thanks!

  529. Ashley says:

    Definitely my nightstands. I bought them second hand, and I have been trying to find a way to spruce them up. This is perfect! Thanks!

  530. Amber says:

    These are really cool, I would probably try these on a dresser that I have!

  531. Brenna says:

    How cool! I would use them on a mirror.

  532. MJ says:

    I’m in the process of remodeling my guest room and rather than toss out my significant other’s childhood dresser, I’d like to give it a little makeover and this would be PERFECT!

  533. kathleen says:

    One style of the overlays would be great on my bathroom bacinet redo. Great item.

  534. Rebecca says:

    I have a mirror in need of an upgrade and one of these overlays would be perfect!

  535. Gizala says:

    I know exactly what I would use the overlays for – to update a dresser in my daughter’s room.

  536. Natalie says:

    I LOVE these things!! I would most definitely put these on the MALM dresser I just purchased for my daughters room — spray paint them HOT pink to go with the decor of her room! I discovered these about 3 mths ago and I am dying to try!

    LOVE overlays!!!!!! I think it’s such an incredible idea!!! I’m dying to use them as a cornice for my bedroom…but of course I’d have to have something customer designed…hehe…hope to win that gift card!!!!!

  538. Jess says:

    I’d like to dress up a mirror with overlays.

  539. Brooke says:

    I have two dressers that I am dying to redo. Overlays would be a great way to spice things up! Now, how do I decide which one…..?

  540. Brooke says:

    I totally shared on FB! I have more than a few friends that will be all over these!

  541. Lesli says:

    YES PLEASE!! We need to redo our fireplace surround, and this is PERFECT!! It would be so classy and original looking :)

  542. Brittany says:

    I would probably use them to jazz up our future end tables. Or maybe our existing nightstands? I would definitely find a place for them somewhere!

  543. Holly Gagne says:

    I’m so happy. My two favorite blog peeps got together to create one amazing table. I just love it. We are hoping to do a large scale custom Overlay for a ceiling in a study very soon!

  544. Dee says:

    I think I’ll probably use it on some furniture pieces. My master bedroom is in desperate need of some pretty dressers!

  545. Dee says:

    I shared this giveaway/post on facebook!

    My little bathroom needs a makeover, would try it there

  547. Shavonda says:

    I recently purchased a dresser at my local thrift store that I’m revamping to use as a bar/ drink serving area in my kitchen. Overlays would add that extra oomph to make it a real focal point!

  548. Debbie says:

    I already have it planned out in my head! Two Ikea Rast dressers painted white with O’verlays painted gold used as a TV stand.

  549. Elaine Parker says:

    I have an oval table similar to yours that I will be refinishing in the spring, I would love to use the Overlays on it. I am envious when I hear you refinishing furniture now, here on the east coast of Canada we have snow and cold! Thanks for giving us Canadians a chance to enter the contest…good luck to me :o)

    I’d use the O’verlays on a dresser re-do. And possibly on the ceiling.

  551. Lesly says:

    Id use my overlays on my desk to give it some style!

  552. Dana says:

    Kate, I love this table and the color is perfect! Should something be primed that is already painted but going to be repainted? I am going to try this!

  553. Ms. Lizzy says:

    Hi Kate, A little late on this post, but I’m new in these woods! :) I really love the SW Oyster Bay on this table. In the picture it looks like a cool blue gray. On the SW website it looks quite green gray. I want to paint my butcher block island, and I will get a sample before I move forward, but just wondering about the truer color? Hoping you captured the truer color….?
