This dresser came from my Grandmothers house. It was in deplorable shape when I got it, (I wish I had taken a before picture)...there were at least 10 coats of paint on it, (likely lead), and the top was in such bad shape, to get it refinished, I would have had to get a new top put on. So, what's a frugal girl to do???
Bring on the Mod Podge!!! Yes, with a bit of colourful paper, some paint and some Mod Podge, I thought I could bring this dresser back to life. Maureen style!!! First things first...I went for a trip to Ottawa...to a little piece of paper paradise called "the Papery", on Bank Street...I'm sure other cities have similar stores! I chose some pretty random selections of gift wrap and scrapbooking papers!
Liberally apply your Mod Podge...don't be shy now...we want your paper to stick.
