Furniture+Decoupage+Maps

Don't you just love decorating with maps? I found a in need of serious love buffet/sideboard at a garage sale, the veneer was all messed up but that didn't matter to me and especially not for the cheap price tag.

P1050372

I removed all the veneer to expose the solid wood underneath, most of it just popped off, but I had to work on the top a little.

P1050374

I painted it using my old paint finish technique and matched one of the blues that was in the map I was using on the front drawers.



P1050427a

I even lined the drawers with the index pages from the back of the atlas.

Next time you see a piece that's in need of love, think decoupage!
Just an FYI, this cutie is for sale.

  35. Hi Trixie, This is just absolutely beautiful. I have a quick question. Where do you find your maps. I've been looking at all my thrift stores trying to find a map with lots of aquas, blues and greens and haven't found them anywhere. Well not until now - you've got them. LOL. I've got a half done project just waiting on a map. Any ideas where to get one.

    Thanks, Tracy :)
