    came across your site searching for an answer to re-doing some laminate booths at our restaurant. i am entertaining the idea of covering them with fabric and mod podge, but it has to be really durable and cleanable. do you know if this could work? anyone ever done a seat on a chair? thanks!

      Hi Jennifer! I’ve actually seen a restaurant do it here in Atlanta with wood chairs. They used Fabric Mod Podge, but then they urethaned over the top so that the Mod Podge wouldn’t get sticky when people’s buns warmed it up. They used SEVERAL layers of urethane. And it worked great! My only concern is cleaning. I would ask that question when you buy the urethane from Home Depot or whatever hardware store – how should it be cleaned? Mod Podge is waterbase and not waterproof, so you can’t spray it with cleaner over and over and have it hold up. You would definitely need something on top!

That part of me loves this dresser, and I really love the base color that Briana chose. The Beatrix Potter panels coordinate nicely.
