A black bookshelf re-do – the backside in

Mod Podge bookshelf backLaura from Rethunk Junk is the kind of Mod Podger I really like – enthusiastic! Mod Podge projects get her giddy, and I can totally relate to that. She did something recently that I always forget about. Laura accented the back inside of her furniture piece using fabric. I love it because it’s subtle . . . but it still makes a statement. Are you noting the stripes and polka dots, by the way?

Visit Laura here to see more images of this bookshelf as well as all of the other furniture she has revamped with Podge. As her blog name suggests, how can you rethunk your junk with Mod Podge?

    I love this project! I don’t have any bookshelves that I really can do this on right now, but I think I need to buy one just so I can try it! Loving that top paisley pattern… Hope you’re having a great weekend.

    I love your blog! I am so inspired! Question though…I have been looking for the perfect paper to mod podge my sons dresser. I finally found some downloadable online. But I am thinking the only way I can have them printed is on photo paper. Can photo paper be mod podged?

    Thanks for the comments, everyone!

    Naomi – yes, photo paper can be Mod Podged. Please test a corner first or print out an extra photo for a test. Every printer is different, so it’s just to be sure . . . let the photos dry after printing for awhile before Podging! Good luck!!
