I NEVER spell 'decoupage' correctly the first time. Everrrr.


So I've recently seen a swarm of decoupaged furniture swirling about the interwebs, and have been itching to try it out. The possibilities are seriously limitless, and only confined to what you can get your hands on!

So this is what I started with...

And here is what I ended up with...

A brief breakdown...

1. Moved everything outside. (Hard when you have no muscle like me)

2. Gave everything a good sanding.

3. Spray-primed everything, then did 2-3 layers of satin white paint.

4. Sanded. Again.

5. Cut fabric to fit the drawer fronts, and hit those with 7-8 layers of Hard Finish ModPodge, sanding every two layers with 400 grit (super fine) sand paper.

6. Coated with some acrylic sealer.

7. Painted the hardware and DONE.

It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be! The hardest was waiting for everything to dry, I think. And getting the fabric to fit right. Oh dear. That was a chore. 

This can be used with fabric or paper, whichever you wish!
