Spoonflower Dresser Makeover

We have teamed up with Spoonflower to create a fantastic dresser using their wrapping paper and Mod Podge! Spoonflower's mission is to give people who make unique things with fabric, giftwrap and wallpaper greater power to express themselves and to make their work available to others.

See below how this dresser was made.

Quickly add precut pieces of wrapping paper on top of the drawer smoothing out with your hand.  Use the squeegee from the kit to smooth to remove any air bubble or excess Mod Podge.  Wipe off any excess Mod Podge around the edges.
7.    Repeat step 4 until all drawers are covered in paper.  Allow Mod Podge to dry completely.
8.    Add two coats of Hard Coat to the entire dresser.  Allow to dry.
9.    Use a small screwdriver to punch holes through the paper for the hardware. Add hardware to drawers.
