Start With Center Point

Use a tape measure to determine the center point of the table top and place the first strip of tape directly down the center (Image 1). Tip: Once the tape is rolled out, be sure not to pull it too much or it will stretch, causing uneven lines. Instead, gently pull the tape from the top of the table to the bottom, pressing lightly in a consistent manner (Image 2).

Attach Tape to Bottom of Table Top

With the tape pulled lightly across the top, then down along the side, extend it one inch along the bottom of the table top; cut with scissors.

Slightly Overlap Each Strip

Begin adding strips of tape, slightly overlapping each one by roughly 1/8 of an inch. This will ensure the table top does not show through should the strips of tape swell.
