I have tried to use Modge Podge in the past and failed terribly so when I was given a dresser and saw some creative things online I thought I would give it a try one more time. After several attempts at finding the right paper to cover the dresser I was able to find some pirate drawings. I measured and cut and Modge Podged my little heart out. As I'm still learning there are some places where the paper is not as smooth as I would like it but overall it turned out ok.
If you are brave enough to try something similar I just recommend using a heavy enough paper. Otherwise it is more difficult. Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think. My next undertaking is a somewhat matching side table. We'll see how that goes.
- Find your paper
- Clean your surface
- Take off knobs if applicable
- Put down a layer of Modge Podge
- Carefully place paper and smooth with hands to get bumps out
- Add another layer of Modge Podge
- Let dry
- Add as many layers of Modge Podge as you would like for the look you are going for
- I spray painted the same knobs black and put them back on so it looked more "Pirate-ish"
