What to do with Plexiglass table top?
I posted this over on the Home Decorating forum also, but I know you guys are really creative when it comes to this type of thing.
I just bought ($3.00 at a yard sale) a coffee table that has an odd-shaped plexiglass top. It just sits on top of a vinyl covered frame which also has 3 ottomans on rollers that slide out from under it. The plexiglass is pretty scratched up. I plan on using this in my DD's new beach themed room in her sitting area.
My initial idea was to decoupodge the underside of the top with cut-out palm trees, then cover the whole back with blue and green paint. I'm open to other suggestions though.
Can anything be done about the scratches? Can they be buffed out or should I just distress it more to give it a "dreamy" effect? Any paints that would make a water-like effect? Any ideas will be appreciated. Keep in mind that sweaty water glasses and who knows what will most likely be left on it, so it needs to hold up well.
