This is my first big decoupage project, and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  Here are some pics of the base materials, which were a children's book I picked up at the thriftstore, and a small, unfinished cabinet purchased at Michael's.

And the fun begins!  I painted the inside of the cabinet, its hinges, and the doorknob with red, oil-based paint.

Then it was onto the exterior.  All I used for this part were the pages from the book, some scissors, and lots of Mod Podge. 

Here's my favorite part, the top of the cabinet. 

Hope y'all like it.  Any comments welcome!

Ooooh!  I really like this!  I think you did a great job balancing the B&W with the color shots.  Great use of an old book!  I'm always too scared to cut up a book, no matter what the condition it's in.
