          If you have ever done decoupage, you should be familiar with PVA glue - permanent white glue, craft glue, book binding glue, etc. It is thinned with water to make it thin enough to be able to be applied thinly or it won't dry clear. This transfer medium is within the similar product line of PVA Glue. You are basically using it to transfer any image to another surface. You can also use the product as the final sealer. This product comes in matte (like eggshell) or glossy.
          Patience is required. You must wait the 12 hours+ for the medium to dry and then gently rub off the backing of the paper. I have transferred a photo to canvas for an artsy look in these pictures.

          Lemon Coral Sedum is a beautifully textured succulent with spiky yellow-green foliage that is visually unique in a container alone. It mounds up to 10 inches tall and trails over the edge of the hanging basket 10-14 inches. This tough-as-nails award winner is heat and drought tolerant and low maintenance.

          Oh I wish I had gotten a few more of these lovely plants! Right now mine is in the hanging basket it came it, but it was a fully developed lush plant and has continued to flourish. I will be dividing this plant eventually and putting the individual sections in a rocky area as these plants are drought tolerant and can grow in shady or sunny areas.
          Sedum will continue to spread out and become a wonderful ground cover. Before winter be sure to transfer this plant into the ground.

          I'm normally not a fan of all in one paint products, but I found Beyond product to be exceptional in this regard. The paint goes on smoothly and evens out nicely. This paint is rated for interior and exterior however, it does need a sealer if you used it out doors.
          I would not skimp on prep of cabinets or furniture. Grease and dirt need to be removed. What you skip here is the priming portion as a separate task. Any raised grain will need to be sanded. Depending on the color, you can expect 2-3 coats. If you have a dark dark finish and you are going white, you should probably use a tinted primer first. Use a high-quality brush or foam roller to eliminate brush marks.

          That being said, unless you put a sealer on the top, you will find that it does chip more easily. This is because there is a barrier between the painted color and the top clear coat. This is true for all painted objects if they are bumped or in high traffic areas. Even baked on or lacquered surfaces are subjected to damage. Read Less

          Nature Brackets are decorative brackets that add personality to your home. They are made from high quality PVC, providing the look and feel of wood but are weather resistant. The PVC will not absorb moisture, making it the choice material for exterior use. Nature Brackets are solid white and ready to install. If preferred, they can be painted. Each bracket comes with pre-drilled holes and stainless-steel screws for easy installation.

          This is a very durable decoration that can be used outside without being subjected to rot. Although by design, it screws on in only two places (at the end of each angle), if you were thinking of this being permanent, I would definitely consider using construction adhesive.
          Can be painted as well with acrylic exterior paint. Spray paint designed for plastics would work as well. Oil based paints would not be advised.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy

          Add a splash of color to your next interior accent wall or decor project with UFP-Edge Charred Wood project boards. Charred Wood is crafted with high-quality lumber that has been expertly burned to highlight its distinct wood-grain pattern. By finishing the boards with a vibrant coat of paint, you get a unique board surface. These bold-colored boards let you create unique accent walls, projects and focal points. If using for furniture or in high-traffic areas, a high quality polyurethane sealer is recommended. Due to the natural characteristics of wood, some cupping and warp may occur. These products are not recommended for outdoor applications. If used for exterior applications, wood protector sealant is required. Color will vary from board to board and lot to lot. It is recommended you purchase your entire job, plus a minimum of 10% overage to ensure most consistent color.

          Answer: 
          I'm sure you could do that although you would not need the 3/4" base for the wood to attach to. The boards are pine. Take a look at how some tables are made. They usually have a skirt around the edge with the legs attached in the corners.
          If you want the boards to remain tight to one another, first lay the boards down on a flat surface and draw a line around where you will place the skirt. Then attach Read More

          If you want the boards to remain tight to one another, first lay the boards down on a flat surface and draw a line around where you will place the skirt. Then attach 3/4" x 2" strips of plywood or other wood evenly across all the boards within that area, leaving room for the legs. The skirt needs to be of enough height to get your legs under the table. Read Less
