D.I.Y - wallpaper your furniture

If you really want to transform your space you need to go BOLD!  Check out this great Do-It-Yourself project that will make any piece of furniture stand out from the crowd.

A fresh and vibrant pattern can do wonders on your wall but what about on your furniture?

Check out online sites for fabulous wallpaper options and breathe new life into an aging cabinet or a funky yard sale find. This is perfect for a cabinet, dresser or end table but nothing too ornate - keep it simple.

1.  Lightly sand the surface. Be sure to unhinge the cabinet doors and remove the hardware.

2.  Apply two coats of an oil-based primer, waiting an hour between coats.

3.  Cut the wallpaper to size using a straightedge blade. 

4.  Paint on a tin layer of mod podge and apply the wallpaper - starting in the centre and working to the edges, this helps to flatten out the air bubbles.

5. Wait 24 hrs before applying a coat of acrylic sealant.

I could believe, wallpaper for the furniture units will be a nice idea. As the table and that cupboard has been decorated with wallpapers, it seems really good idea to give a new look to your old furniture.
