Materials Needed

  • paint
  • wallpaper paste (if needed)
  • wallpaper
  • scissors or utility knife

Step 1

Paint the table base and tabletop edges, and let dry. Leave the tabletop unpainted.

Step 2

Center a large piece of wallpaper over the tabletop and adhere (ours was prepasted, but use wallpaper paste if yours isn’t). Once it dries, use scissors or a utility knife to trim the wallpaper to the shape of the tabletop.
