My bedroom renovation has been a saga of epic proportions, seeing as my parents wanted to buy my new furniture and be done, whereas I wanted to redo all of said furniture and drag it out for as long as possible Smiley So I took my 45-year-old chest of drawers dresser thing, and gave it a facelift!



I had always wanted to try decoupaging fabric onto furniture, but never had a good excuse to do so until now!

A before...





I used about 6 or 7 layers of ModPodge Hard Coat for the drawer fronts, sanding with 400grit between every two coats, and then a ModPodge clear matte sealer to finish it off. The body of the dresser is a combo of white primer, spray paint, and wall paint, as I 1. Ran out of my original spray paint, 2. DROPPED the sander onto the top of the dresser and gouged a chunk out, and 3. Did this all outside in the horrendous winds lol!

Some in progress shots...








More details on mah bloggy Smiley

Thanks so much for looking!

Yours turned out so nicely, awesome job.

OMG I must do this. Any tips for types of fabric I should use? Also did you use mod podge, and/or anything else to put the fabric on the wood panels, or to seal it?

I say go for it! I would definitely recommend a medium-weight fabric for this, not just flimsy cotton...because I tried, and the bubbling was horrible and I had to start over. I used ModPodge Hard Coat (its in a purpley container) for the fabric (a BUNCH of coats, sanding with ultra fine sandpaper in between) and I sealed it with some Valspar Clear Spray Enamel/Varnish Smiley

 Shocked That Is Perfect!

My craftroom is yellow with white bits... and i'm getting some ugly-ass wooden furnature from my mum... white with some lovely yellow fabric or scrapbook paper would look amazing... don't know why i didn't think of it before...

So, admitedly, I have spent the past little while scrolling through your craftster posts to see what else you did with this room-re-do of yours and must tell you how IMPRESSED I am! I cannot imagine what your parents must have thought after seeing what you created with all that "crap furniture"! To think that they wanted to throw all that GOODNESS in the trash is absurd to me. I just HATE to see a solid pience of furniture go to the dump like that, especially since nowadays it is so HARD to FIND such nice quality furniture.

This dresser turned out beautiful! I love the fresh white coat and the yellow printed fabric is so pretty! I like that you used more than one print. You can really see the lines in the furniture. It is very feminine. What a stunning way to revamp that thing! The entire ROOM deserves praise, as well as every individual pience that you worked on to make this happen. I am in awe.

This is soooo cute! I did a dresser when my daughter was born and used wallpaper instead of fabric. That was twenty years ago! I love your design and appreciate you sharing with us.
