We used to rent tables and chairs in the 90s. It was my mom's business. The business did great for a decade and when it went down, we hid all the chairs and tables in a room. They look old and dirty now. I decided to just play with it.
These are what we're going to use:
used wrapping paper (or any paper you want)
scissors or cutter or exacto knife
homemade mod podge (mix 50% water and 50% glue)
I made sure the table's clean before I applied my homemade mod podge. I find that using 100% glue dries quicker than the water+glue solution. I couldn't find any store selling a foam brush so I used a replacement. See the white foam in the picture? That's the foam placed inside shoes to protect them from wrinkling. After applying water+glue solution, place the paper and allow it to dry.
