Lack and stripes

Materials: Lack coffee table

Description: I have cut various stripes of paper from newspaper, giftwrap and other recycling items and I have pasted, with glue mixing with some drops of water, on the top of my LACK coffee table, like a decoupage. For easier cleaning of the surface I have brushed on a finishing paint.

    What kind of glue did you use?

  3. Awsome! it is nice to have a skill like that. I really want to add life to a boring old furniture. Just a simple creativity and imagination will do the trick right?
