Attempting To Decoupage...

My first time to decoupage...
And this is how she turned out.
 I had this old computer desk and cut the legs down to a kid friendly height.
I lightly sanded the whole thing.
Primed.
Then spray painted in a white gloss finish.
Purchased a cute scrapbook paper and some Mod Podge.
Applied paper with Mod Podge.
I would have like it to be a bit less seamless, but for my first time... It's okay.
Now it will go into the kids room.

That's lovely, much nicer than the original. Well done! And I love the paper - it reminds me a bit of the Cath Kidston mono rose wallpaper.

Jess! First time? Puh-shaw! It turned out beautifully!! Sorry sweet kiddos, if this were in my house I'd totally keep it for myself. =]

Great Job! See, I told you that you finished your projects while I just buy crap to start things that take me years to finish!
