Torn Wallpaper at Dining Room Table

We bought a new dining room table to replace the original. Removing the old one looked easy... remove the screws in the plate that's attached to the wall, and carry it out. Well... it seems that they put silicone behind the plate so when you remove the plate, it removes the wallpaper. We now have a bare spot 12 inches wide and 4 inches high. Although the new table blocks it somewhat, it is still fairly visible. We have no hopes of duplicating the wallpaper so, we have so far, unsuccessfully, brainstormed for solutions.

Has anyone removed their dining room table and, if so, have you resolved the dilemma of the torn-off wallpaper?

You could make a shelf to put spices, napkins stuff like that make it in the shape 90 degree angle use the top as the shelf and the bottom cover the bare spot and to attach to wall stain it to match your wood in the unit your gettig 2 things the wall covered an a place to put items.

What about using another "plate" as part of the new table installation?
