Materials: Old french book, PVA and clear varnish

Description: This was originally the UTBY Bar table, brown-black, stainless steel. After having this table for 3 years, the wood veneer came off in places. The table started to look terrible. So I made a table cover from an old French book. I'm really pleased with the results, this photo was taken 3 months after, even though it is regularly used, wear has been minimal.

If you want to make something similar all you need to do is get an old book, some PVA and clear vanish. Around 6 layers of vanish will need to be applied after the glue has dried to protect the table. The material costs for a cheap second hand book, PVA and vanish was less than £10.
