Decopage Project

Hi readers! I was very improv and decided to go ahead and decopage my dresser top Sunday. I had been thinking about doing it for a few weeks. But I was not sure how to decopage and what I would decopage onto my dresser. At first I thought I would do old book pages or hymnal pages, but then I realized I had this old flower book and I used these colored pictures instead.

I bought the flower book at thrift store during the summer when I went with my sister for less an a dollar I think. It was a book about flowers and how they grow and such for kids from the 60s or 70s I think. I love how the dresser top turned out!

I just used elmers blue and water to make a thick paste and I watched some videos on youtube on how to do it. I could not find the video I watched on how to make the paste out of glue and water. Sorry!

So yes my dream of a decopaged dresser is complete! :) Now I want to decopage my book shelves too. Its addicting! :)

thanks gals! Yeah Ginny I am so glad I just sat down and did it instead of saying oh I do not have the time. It really adds some chicness to my room I think. ;)
