Covering a table with tape is such an awesome idea for turning an old piece of furniture or a kid’s play table into a rainbow kaleidoscope of color! This technique is perfect for a child’s room or to brighten up an office. You can transform your furniture with just a few easy steps and minimal materials!
- Assortment of duct tape, paper tape or washi tape
- Piece of furniture
Simply cover the desired surface of your piece of furniture with side-by-side strips of tape that are slightly overlapping. Firmly press down the tape edges to prevent the tape from peeling back up. You can top the table with a piece of glass or plastic as an extra protective layer or enjoy it as-is.
