Mermaids, unite! Time to bring some waves into the bedroom with this super simple DIY. To transform your bedside table into an under-the-sea dream, all you need is a glass table top and some colored vinyl. Let’s do this.

Materials and Tools:


  1. Measure out a vinyl piece.
  2. Cut a wave shape on one end.
  3. Adhere to the table top.
  4. Cut off any excess vinyl.
  5. Repeat with different colors, shapes, and sizes. Layer on top of one another for a wavy effect.
  6. Wipe down and you’re done!

This is seriously the easiest DIY ever. Measure and cut out pieces of vinyl. Create a wavy end and adhere to your table. Use the vinyl wrap tool to make sure there are no bubbles in the vinyl, and be sure to cut off the extra vinyl on the ends. It’s MUCH easier to do this after you’ve attached the vinyl to the table. All you have to do is slide the scissors on the edge of the table.

Repeat this step with different colors and voila — you’re done!

Now all you have to do is fill your table with your favorite sea-themed decor, like these clay faux coral *plants.*

It really brings the room together. Don’t you think?
