Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Cut your papers to size.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
