Cardboard is the most affordable and easy-to-work material from which you can make many amazing crafts. One craftswoman decided to build an incredible, practical and simply cool thing out of ordinary cardboard - a small table that is convenient to put on bed and breakfast. Also, this table can be made for children (or even together with them), because the master class is so simple and fun.
The first step is to cut two equal pieces of cardboard measuring 46 * 28 cm.
Cut out a piece of foam or expanded polystyrene of a similar size. Round off the edges of all the details.
Cut off 4 future legs for a table of the required length from dense cardboard sleeves.
Cut holes for the legs in cardboard and foam.
We glue cardboard, polystyrene and another piece of cardboard together using polymer glue.
Using PVA glue, slightly diluted in water, we glue pieces of newspaper along the edge of the resulting craft so that the edges are neat and even.
We insert the legs, greased with glue, and tamp a few pieces of newspaper inside so that the table stands firmly.
If desired, we glue the decor along the edge of the table, and cover the surface itself with white paint. We process the edges around the legs with putty.
At this stage, the table can be decorated or repainted in a different color, since now any shade will fit well on the white paint. Using a stencil, you can make a beautiful pattern.
The final stage is the coating of the product with varnish.
The cardboard table is ready!
