I had this table in storage and because of the damaged top,
*regular Mod Podge decoupage medium (I like the satin finish)
*a wide foam brush
*a water based polyurethane or varnish
*cotton duck, or 100% heavy duty cotton fabric with
*If you are going to paint the piece, like I did, it is best to do that
step first and do the decoupaging after the paint is cured.
Do not paint the area to be decoupaged.
Sand your surface. If it is a leather top, sand it until all of the shine is gone.
Cut your fabric to fit. If the edge isn’t perfect don’t worry,
After completely covering the surface in medium,
lay your fabric on the surface being careful not to stretch it.
Use your hand to push out all of the air bubbles and excess glue.
If you leave either under the surface it will dry that way.
If you need to reposition your fabric, pull it up gently, and reapply the medium.
It may stretch the fabric slightly, so it is better to put it on right the first time.
If you do, let the paint dry completely before adding the next layer of medium.
Otherwise, you can leave it as is and move on to the next step.
Depending on the use, I put 2-3 coats on, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
