7 Decoupage Ideas on Wood for Beginners
1- Easy Wooden Drawers Decoupage Project
My inspiration comes from frustration on not finding things around the house when I needed then. You know, it always happens when you need a stick tape to wrap your child teacher’s present at the last minute.
This project is also an idea if you are thinking about organising your children’s room and rounding up all their bits and bobs to put in one place.
Well, in my case I just wanted to organise my craft stuff and have easy access to things I use all the time. I also wanted my desk clean to have more space to work on my projects.
So off to IKEA to find something suitable as storage.
IKEA is a fabulous place to find just about “everything” and “anything” you can imagine, or not… So in my visit, I found this set of drawers, and I decided that this is what I want to use for my project:
Easy Step by Step to Decoupage
I used some pictures from old magazines, things that inspire me, as wild animals, nature and beautiful places which will be exposed instead of paper clips, tapes, etc.…
In this project, I used EVA and water, as I had EVA for a bookbinding project, but you can use PVA (simple glue that children use in school projects).
You can find this at any supermarket or stationery shop.
1- I started cutting my pictures from the magazines measuring the size of the front of drawers.
2- Using a brush, I spread the glue evenly on top of each drawer and back of each picture, placed the image on the top of the drawer and covered with another layer of glue.
3- After all pictures in place I let it to dry.
4- You can fix the units into the wall
5- You can also leave the set on the top of the desk or on a shelf.
See my video below where I show how I made this Decoupage for a beginners project.
