The outdoor season has finally arrived! And with it, we’re all looking forward to a wonderful sunny time on the balcony or terrace. Practical seating, a dining table and side tables are essential for enjoying a great time with friends and family. So here’s a summer upcycling idea to make your side tables a huge success with a granite look. With the d-c-fix® Porrinho adhesive foils in a beige or gray-blue granite look, the table surfaces are lent a trendy natural stone appearance to turn them into chic helpers for the balcony. Tip: to enjoy the new granite look for a long time to come, protect the tables from rain and moisture as these can damage the covering.

And here’s how to achieve that granite styling on your side tables:
You have everything you need? Then get started!
Determine the dimensions of the rectangular tabletop or the diameter if the side table has a circular top.
Transfer the dimensions or the diameter onto the rear side of the d-c-fix® Porrinho beige or Porrinho gray-blue adhesive foil using a pencil. Then add a few centimeters of excess and also mark this on the back of the foil.
Next, cut the foil to size along the marked lines using the utility knife.
Remove the backing paper from the piece of granite-look foil.
Apply the foil to the surface of the table and smooth it down firmly using the doctor blade.
Now carefully cut off the excess foil along the tabletop edge using the utility knife.
Small air pockets can form, especially when covering larger surfaces – such as the top and side surfaces here. You can puncture these bubbles with a fine needle and then carefully smooth them out with the squeegee.
