Mod Podge Madness!!

I've recently discovered the magic that is Mod Podge!! 


It has provided a solution to the problem I was having with my dressing table, which I had painted and covered with the  Cath Kidston Antique Rose wallpaper that I have on one wall of the bedroom. I needed something to protect it and didn't think varnish was the answer so when I discovered Mod Podge I thought it would be perfect as it is made especially for decoupaging.


I gave the dressing table and the chest (which belonged to Hubby's granddad) a couple of coats:




I'm now finding myself eyeing up other things with the intention of covering them with CK and Mod Podge!!

  3. Oh that is absolutely beautiful!
    How nice to be able to look at that everyday. It's so cheery and pretty.

    I had never heard of Mod Podge either and I had been thinking of covering some of our bathroom furniture with wall paper to brighten it up, as it's just been 'refashioned' from other furniture I was disposing of.

    This could be just the answer.
    Would it still work in a damp type of climate?

  4. Lostinblue - I would say it would be fine in the bathroom as long as you do a couple of coats. If you sand lightly between each coat it gets rid of the brush marks and gives a lovely smooth finish.
