I cut the cardboard which will be used as surface for bonding self-adhesive foil, since the the shelf is rusted and rough.

Step 3: Preparation of Self-adhesive Foil

Cut the self-adhesive foil to fit the shelf. The rest of the foil i cutted into stripes (for shelf feet). This foil had a grid on back side, it's easier to cut :)

Step 4: Main Step
