What I used:
Once the foam piece was cut, the fabric was cut to the needed size.
Then, I flipped it over and started gluing the fabric to the board with the new X-TREME glue stick. In the past, I probably would have used a hot glue gun for a project like this. But, this was so much better!! No chance of burnt fingers, no stringy glue-gun “hairs”, and no bumps in the fabric. Perfect for this!
Once that was done, I cut any excess fabric from the corners and then added ribbons to secure it to the table. I wasn’t sure if we would ever want to take it off or what, so I decided to make the table top removable. To do this, I glued ribbon under the fabric to the center of each side.
So, the underneath side ended up looking like this:
To attach the new top to the table, I laced the ribbons through the holes of the table top.
Then, I tied the ribbons together as tight as possible (just like tying a bow tight to a package).
After flipping the table over, then, voila–a much better looking table top! 🙂
