Give your old Lack table a second chance! A little contact plastic can look absolutely gorgeous! Plus, you don't have to spend any money on a new table. METHOD: Lay the plastic on the table and cut a piece to the approximate size you want. You can cut it to a more exact size later. Remove the protective plastic from one corner and stick the contact plastic to the table. Continue pulling off the protective plastic, small pieces at a time, and stick the contact plastic as you go. Rub the plastic with your hand to smooth out any air bubbles. Once you've covered the tabletop, carefully run a scalpel along the edge of the table to cut off the excess plastic.
