  1. Trace the signs (we found ours on Etsy and eBay) onto a ¾-inch-thick piece of MDF. Have a hardware store cut them out for you. Sand each MDF panel’s edges. 
  2. Prime the panels’ edges, and brush a little primer on their tops and bottoms. Let dry. 
  3. Lay the panels facedown, and, using a pencil, draw a line along the shorter ends of each panel where the table legs should go. The lines should be about 1 inch from each panel’s edges.

  5. Adhere a sign to the top of each panel with construction adhesive. Let dry.
