White and Blue with Flowers All Over

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile may recall this post. The other day while at a local thrift store, I stumbled upon my own diamond in the rough:




And turned it into something better:


There are tons of ideas out there on how to cover furniture with different materials: fabric, paper, etc. But HOW do you get just the right shape? After a few attempts with this little baby, I have a great solution. Because the top of my magazine stand was an intricate shape, I laid a piece of tissue paper on top of it and traced around the edges with the side of a pencil. By doing this I got the exact shape I needed to cut out of paper.

I taped the tissue paper right side facing the wrong side of my wrapping paper and cut around it. Result: a perfectly fitting piece of paper to grace the top.

Then I mod podged the paper to the top. By laying down the paper on the mod podge slowly, and massaging the bubbles out as I went, it decreased the bumpiness of the finished product.



VoilĂ !
