I have had this a couple of years. Cost two bucks. I spilled an entire pitcher of water on it a few days ago and in attempting to mop up the mess, saw that it was only a basic coating of (ripped) thick plastic stuff. Decided then and there to redo it. Old plasttic came off easily with a razor.
After drying with a hair dryer, I looked everywhere for old
I used a pair of tweezers to tuck in all edges but even after that finished look I wanted more, so added the only ric rac I had.
I hope it holds up. At least it is more pleasing to the eye now!
