Decoupage pine drawers

Standard

Hello visitors

It’s been ages since my last post and don’t know where the time went, during the summer I did visit America, I stayed in Atlanta and had a  shopping morning at Hobbylobby and managed to get a few ideas from there for some new projects, any walking dead fans? I went on the walking dead tour which was brilliant and recommend it.

So, while I was away hubby was decorating the spare room in some lovely pink paris wallpaper, I had this chest of drawers given to me by my late uncle and wanted to give it a face lift.

I gave it a light sanding and painted it white, I then roughly cut some left over wallpaper to fit the top and drawer fronts of the unit. I then soaked the backing off the wallpaper and let it dry out. Using Mod Podge I glue the wallpaper in place taking care to smooth out, when it was dry I gave it another coat of glue, then after that dried I varnished it with decoupage varnish.

I was quite pleased with my first attempt at this,

and it’s brightened up my spare room too.

Thanks for looking today
