Measure Each Riser for Acrylic Sheeting

To protect the wallpaper from scuffing, it’s best to add a protective layer of acrylic sheeting directly to the front, secured into the wooden riser. In order to ensure the proper sizing of the acrylic, take the measurement for each riser’s height and length individually.

Mark and Measure Acrylic Sheeting

Referring to measurements taken for each individual riser, mark each 4X8' acrylic sheet to size with pencil.

Cut Acrylic Sheeting (With Protection!)

Protect eyes with safety goggles and protect ears with earmuffs. Place acrylic sheeting onto table saw, then cut along marked lines.
