Happy spring, friends! Yay! I am sooo happy spring is finally here. It's been such a long winter! And I especially love this floral paper that I found that reminds me of spring. I an definitely ready to craft with florals again!
I found this itty bitty stool at an antique store a few years ago, and I am finally ready to give it a little makeover. Here's what you need to give your furniture a little facelift:
- Mod Podge Matte (Furniture Mod Podge is even better!)
- Patterned Paper or Cardstock
- Plastic Scraper
To get started, first turn your stool upside down and trace your patterned paper.
Using scissors, cut your paper down to the correct size. I cut an extra 1/4 inch off each side so I had a little bit of space between the paper and the edge, but you can cut it the full length if that's what you want!
Use a plastic scraper to smooth out the surface to get rid of any air bubbles.
Add a coat of Mod Podge to the top of your stool and allow it to fully dry. Add a second coat if desired.
Because I want this stool to be functional and not just for looks, I added about three coats to the top, waiting for the Mod Podge to dry between each coat.
I used a Matte Mod Podge, but you can definitely use a gloss if you want a nice sheen on your project!
That's it! Super easy, and I love how it turned out! Such a lovely reminder of spring, don'tcha think?
My little stool is now happily hanging out in my living room. I also use it in my pantry whenever I need to grab something just out of reach. It's cute and functional!
