Easy DIY Item

I think I've mentioned it before but I go through magazines like crazy! I don't even know how many subscriptions I have anymore. But the other day while on the bus, I came across a fabulous DIY project in my Redbook magazine (yes, I read Redbook, and no, I'm not that old). You've got to check this great DIY way to spruce up a boring dressing. I've included the main pictures below but to get the exact directions, you can go right here Redbook online.

So, in order to get this (gorgeous, isn't it?)...


All you have to do is have a plain dresser, some fabulous wallpaper, mod podge and these crazy easy steps...



 

 

And voila, you get this looker! And I guarantee it, you'll have people asking you where you got it. Don't you just love it?

ooo that is great!! i wonder what 'mod podge' is in german. i have trouble finding things here because that's the language it is all written in! makes the project after finding the supplies seem easy :)

Rolerkite said...

I'm also a sucker for magazines. The internet is my best friend, but there is something about holding a tangible picture in your hand and marking the pages and creasing the corners that will never get old to me.

Valerie said...

What a fabulous idea! It looks amazing. I might have to try this sometime.

Hearthandmade said...

this is amazing!! I have to do something like this in my parents conservatory because they currently have a very chic newly decorated conservatory.. with a big ugly upcycled from old kitchen cupboards utility cupboard with a tumbledryer on show... So i need to add a new cupboard door over the tumble dryer and was thinking of wallpapering over them, some stylish new handles and possibly blackboard paint.. but that would be beneficial only for me!

I definitely laughed out loud at the redbook comment. loved it!

I would totally want to try this but would be so nervous if I got sick of the pattern (at which time I'd change the pattern) I just might have to try this...if I do, I'll letcha know!
