4 easy ways to turn an old table from staid to stunning
A writing desk
How to do it
Step 2) Cut a piece of wallpaper the same length as the table. Depending on the width of the roll, you may need two lengths to cover the whole table top. If so, place the join towards the back of the desk where it’s less likely to be noticed.
Step 3) Use Spray Mount to attach the paper to the table and prevent it moving, then top with a cut-to-size glass panel. Avoid sharp corners by asking for polished edges when having your glass cut.
