I recently saw a colorful resin table top filled with Mardi Gras beads and went NUTS!  What a terrific way to use up all of those crazy colorful beads!  Also, if you know anything about New Orleans and Mardi Gras, what did they have to do to get so many of them?!  I decided to try something similar with a little more of a “princess-chic” vibe using some extra pearl trim I picked up for a song.  One of my nieces is still going through the princess phase and I cannot wait until it’s over.  I learned A LOT making this table.  For example, you can sand resin once it’s cured and then coat it with more resin and it’s perfect!   I also learned that you can create a barrier edge with simple masking tape.  Check out the video below to see how I did it.  Have fun!  Mark
Pretty sure this will end up in my niece’s bedroom
Watch how easy it is to make here!
Stuff You’ll Need
Small round table
Masking tape
 Here’s How
1.  2. & 3. Starting in the exact center of the table, glue beads in a spiral until you reach the outer edge
4. & 5. Create a rim/barrier edge around the table with two layers of masking tape 
*Make sure it’s snug to the table and that the tape is higher than the top of the pearls
6. Follow the instructions for mixing the Glaze Coat
7. & 8. Pour the glaze coat on the table top and evenly distribute it with a sponge brush
9. Pop the bubbles with a torch and let cure overnight
*Make sure you cure your table in an unoccupied room free of dirt and dust
10.  Remove the masking tape
11.  If you need to, you can round the edge of the table with a sander
12. Glaze the rough sanded edges with another layer of Glaze Coat and let cure
