Picnic table, White paint, Ruler, Pencil, Scissors, Decorative paper
- Prep and paint a wood picnic table. Make sure you spackle any large holes and sand. We painted ours with two coats of white house paint.
- Measure each board to determine the size of paper needed. Note that many times the boards will not be the same size. Add a little leeway to the measurement to account for the size differences and impurities.
- Cut your papers to size.
- Apply a liberal coat of Mod Podge to the top of the table. Work one board at a time. Position the paper onto the board, smooth with your fingers. Use the brayer to flatten and smooth the paper. Continue for each board.
- Wait 15 minutes after the last paper goes down before top-coating. To top-coat ally a smooth layer of Mod Podge Furniture to each board. Try to have all your brushstrokes going in the same direction.
- Apply 4 layers of top-coat to the table. Allow for 1 hour of drying in between the coats.
- PROJECT TIP: Patchwork it! Can’t find long rolls of paper? Piece together scrapbook papers to make a patchwork look.
