OK, so maybe it's not quite COMPLETE, but I was too excited!
I started this like 3 years ago! (I know, shame on me) but It's so pretty It makes my bedroom happy to be in its presence! Cheesy



I love it! I've just saved all of these old magazines...
I've even put all of my ages while I've been doing it on there, so if you look, you'll see a 10, 11, 12, and 13!!!

Thanks!!! I've just been sealing it with Mod Podge Glue cuz the bottle says it can be used as a sealer, but I wouldn't recommend it since it like, gets stuck to stuff that you set on the surface and it really kind of ruins the affect if there's little ripped up spots on it. I'm sure theres something made for it, but I'm just too lazy to go out and look 4 it! Huh

i use mod podge 2 but it does the same thing  Undecided which sadens me. i might try spray on adhesive? like they use to glue puzzles 2gether. just make sure u get an even coat. ive get to find the perfect collaging sealer yet though. good luck finishing =]

This looks awesome!

You mentioned you were having troble sealing it... I know when I've done my larger decoupaged projects I use mod-podge to stick the images down and then I seal it with a few coats of polyurethaine. It works really well, especially if you take the time to sand between coats.

you should be able to find a small can of it at the hardware store. It's usually by the paints and wood stains.

Awesome dresser, I take it that it's going to remain an ongoing project for a while? It's a pretty sweet idea...it justifies my glossy music/fashion magazine addiction...And thank you amiga for the polyurethaine sugestion!
