Instructions

Step 1: Mix ½ cup of Selleys® Sugar Soap into ½ bucket (5 litres) of water. Use a soft cloth to clean the table from top to bottom with the sugar soap solution.

Step 2: Sand the table down and clean it again with Selleys® Sugar Soap to remove any dust.

Step 3: Measure and cut the wallpaper a bit oversized (2-3cm) to the front of the drawers leaving precut holes where the handles will go.

Step 4: Apply Selleys® Kwik Grip® Vertical both to the wallpaper and the front of the drawer and spread evenly. Keep surfaces apart until adhesive is almost dry – approximately 20 minutes. Then press surfaces firmly together. Secure bond by running a roller over the wallpaper. Wait 24 hours before using the bedside table.

Step 5: Use the leftover wallpaper to line the drawers. Measure the inside of the drawers and cut to size. This time apply Selleys® Kwik Grip® Horizontal to both the inside of the drawer, and the wallpaper. Keep surfaces apart until adhesive is almost dry – approximately 20 minutes. Then work from one edge to press surfaces firmly together. Secure bond by running a roller over the wallpaper. Wait 24 hours before using the bedside table.

Step 6: Add handles to the front of the bedside table and glue, with Selleys® Araldite® 5 Minute onto the into the precut holes of the wallpaper. Dispense equal parts of both liquids onto a clean disposable surface (e.g. a disposable plastic plate) and mix both parts together thoroughly. Apply mixed glue to the drawer and the handle, then bring together. If you need a stronger bond, use a clamp. Leave for 16 hours before using.

Step 7: Paint it in the colour of your choice using Dulux® Wash&Wear® avoiding the areas where the vinyl is.

Step 8: Lie in bed and admire your new bedside table!
