I have this really ugly two shelf cart thing. It's missing a wheel and has this really blah "wood" particle board. Brilliant idea! Cover it with an issue of a sweet newspaper and take the wheels off!

My question is this - is there anything I need to know about mod podge and particle board? Is mod podge even the best way to do this? I'm great with ideas, execution sometimes eludes me.

Thanks crafters!!!

I am curious about this also.. I have a few very beautiful pieces of particle board furniture (that is totally sarcastic) that I've been thinking about making pretty with mod podge. 
Although I haven't tried it yet.. I don't think it will be a problem.  I plan on sanding the laminate surface first a little, because I'm paranoid and worried that way (and I figure that it couldn't hurt.. nothing could hurt these pieces of furniture any more).

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.

That's true, I don't think I could make this thing uglier if I tried.

I figure I'll sand it to rough it up, add a layer of mod podge, a layer of newspaper, and more mod podge.

ModPodge is water based, so I would put a top layer of lacquer after everything has dried.
A small spill could ruin it.  Sad
