Carefully remove individual book pages from your old books. Don’t worry if some pages are slightly ripped or torn. Just use these as a base layer, and opt for whole pages for your final finish.

Start by layering the Mod Podge on the table using a brush. Then, begin placing book pages strategically in the Mod Podge.

Once you have a base layer of pages, you can add another layer of Mod Podge on top of the dry pages and repeat the process until you have covered the entire table.
