    next i chose my paper. i love asterix comic illustrations and decided the sacrifice of my collection was worth it.It only took two comics to paper this entire work table.

    Step 3

    I dug out some leftover wall primer from the store room and gave the table a once over. I started glueing the paper on while the paint was still tacky. It also helped the paper to adhere to the surface better. I worked systematically. Layered the glue thinly and pasted the sheets.Making sure to press down the paper to push out any air bubbles.For the legs i cut the pages in strips and pasted them making sure to overlap paper around the edges.

    Finally after the papering was done i let it dry overnight and gave it four coats of lacquer, allowing drying time between coats.And thats it, all done!
