Step 8: The Top Molding in Place
It is much easier to work on the box lying down flat. That means you can only glue down two sides at a time, so that one side (left or right) must wait until the other two have dried. In my assembly, it was a cinch to do the whole empty side at once, after the rest were all completely dry. If you are impatient, part of your hard work will adhere to the tabletop! The top molding is first. Lay down a generous layer of Mod Podge, gently position the damp molding into it, and take a brush loaded with more medium and start gently brushing from the center to the outside. You will see the paper moves easily under your brush. Lay on a nice layer of medium over the top of the paper, and a quick swipe with a damp paper towel to wipe up the extra Mod Podge before it dries ( it gets lumpy if you don't wipe it down). Make sure your corners match and that you don't have any bubbles.
