This map chair will be such a beautiful addition to your home! Use maps of your favorite places – so easy to do with Mod Podge.
Okay, I’m going to be the first to admit that it doesn’t say that this cool map chair was made with Mod Podge – in fact, it was a thrift store find.
The point is that you COULD make it with Mod Podge, and you could do it very easily. I love decoupage with maps, and I want either a dresser or chair with them Mod Podged on top in my next place. Yay!
Even though no instructions were provided in the original post, I’m happy to provide a tutorial below. If you want to decoupage a chair with maps, use this to do it.
3 good reasons at roddy and ginger
- Wood chair
- Map paper sheets
- Mod Podge Hard Coat
- Minwax Polycrylic
- Spray bottle
- Craft knife
- Clean the chair and take off the back and seat (if possible). Sand and wipe away the sanding dust. Paint if desired.
- Cut the paper to fit both the back and seat (with overlap). Add water to the spray bottle and lightly mist the paper (this will prevent wrinkles).
- Starting with the back, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the wood surface. Place the paper down and smooth with a brayer to remove wrinkles.
- Let dry 15 - 20 minutes and then trim the edges with the craft knife.
- Seal with Mod Podge over the top of the paper. Let dry for 15 - 20 minutes.
- Apply two more coats of Mod Podge, letting dry between coats. Let dry and apply a coat of poly. Let dry.
- Repeat steps 3 - 6 with the seat bottom.
- Once the seat and back are completely dry, replace them onto the chair frame.
