Learn how to Mod Podge furniture with this collection of unique home decor tutorials – everything from tables to dressers to chairs and more.

The first question everyone typically has is, “How do I get started decoupaging furniture?” Understandably so. You need to follow these steps.

1) Choose a surface. There are tables, chairs, stepstools, cabinets, bookcases, dressers, and more. I recommend choosing a smaller item for your first Mod Podge furniture piece and working your way up . . . however, a larger item is simply more time consuming.

2) Choose something to apply to the surface. You can use fabric, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, wallpaper, or pretty much anything you like.

3) Get Hard Coat Mod Podge. A Mod Podge furniture project requires a tougher formula. I use Hard Coat Mod Podge for my furniture DIYs.

4) Prep your furniture piece. I have a six step process for prepping your piece for Mod Podge – you can find it here.

5) Get to decoupaging! Now that your piece is prepped, you have your Mod Podge, and you know what you’re putting on the surface – you’re ready. I have a post all about adding fabric to wood furniture.
