Materials Needed:

  • paint
  • decal sheet
  • crafts knife
  • glass top, cut to size

Step 1

Paint the table, including the top, and let dry.

Step 2

Position a decal sheet along the center seam of the table, and apply it from the center out to one edge, following the instructions on the packaging. Repeat for the other side of the tabletop (we used two decal sheets for this 46-inch-long table). Cut away any excess around the table’s edges with a crafts knife.

Step 3

To make the surface 100% water-safe, add a glass top.
