Project Instructions

Step 1 Lay out your materials (papers, Mod Podge® glue, a couple of medium and small foam brushes, a paper plate, scissors, and a plastic tarp to protect your flooring).

Step 2 Remove all hardware from the furniture.

Step 3 Sort the papers, apply a light coat of Mod Podge®, using the large foam brush, to an area of the piece of furniture. Apply a piece of paper and press down.

Step 4 Apply more Mod Podge® over the paper generously with the foam brush while pressing down.

Step 5 Repeat Steps 2 and 3, alternating papers, pictures etc. For smaller or harder to reach spaces, use the smaller foam brush.

Step 6 You can work in small areas at a time or you can do the whole item all together. Let it dry as suggested on the Mod Podge® bottle instructions before re-attaching hardware or decorating.

Step 7 Attach hardware and decorate.
