A dear friend is decorating her nursery in "Baby snoopy".  Baby snoopy isn't easy to find, and she asked that I paint and decorate a chest of drawers to go with the bedding.....
Aside from tracing the baby snoopy characters and hand painting them on the furniture, I cannot think of how to do this.....I would prefer to do it a different way if possible, I don't have the confidence in my skills to freehand this project!!  Any ideas?

after deciding on a image take it to a copy shop and have it enlarged to the size you need use a spray adhevise to fix on to posterboard,cut out and you will have a templete

if you can get your hands on an overhead projector, you could super impose the furniture with clear overlays of the artwork and just trace it.

when my brother and sister-in-law had their second daughter, i did a chest of drawers with tigger, a honeypot, a little bumblebee buzzing around, and eeyore.  i took the wall decorations they bought and overhead projected them on a wall and used larger paper to trace them.  then pencil rubbed the images onto the front of the dresser.  viola.  can't wait to see the finished project.  Smiley

You could always decoupage the fabric to the drawer fronts and then paint the cabinet to coordinate.
