I've had this dresser since I was little and at one point I painted white over the original wood, but never did much else to it. I bought sheets of loteria cards recently and thought I'd add some color!







I did this the same way I did the tarot card coffee table:

That looks great - did you protect the cards in some way?

I really like the style of the dresser too!

I glued the sheets down and then spread clear matte medium over them with a credit card. It was a lot easier to spread over individual cards like I did for the tarot card table....the sheets were kind of unruly and wanted to bubble.

this is great! i love loteria cards, but have not found any use to them...where did you find sheets of them? was it easier to work with the sheets or the individual cards (like you did with the tarot cards)??

thanks!

There's this great mexican crafts store here in the city where I got the sheets (which came with a pack of them as individual cards too) called La Sirena: http://www.lasirenanyc.com/
I think maybe you can make a phone order. If not, try google or even ebay...

Personally, I found working with the individual cards easier because the sheets kept wanting to buckle and wrinkle. If I'd had some spray mount (spray glue) to lay them down better first that might not have been a problem. Also, the space betweent the individual cards allows for more glue touching the surface directly...
