Brighten up your life! DIY Decoupage

Decoupage and chalk painting on clothes hangers.


To be honest, these were practice runs as it was my first time using chalk paint and doing decoupage.

So, Get yourself some wooden hangers. I got these in Euro Giant, 3 for €1.50.

You need to cover the area in varnish, then place the paper down and varnish over it. This needed a few coats of varnish as there was so many finicky corners.


For the other two hangers, again I sanded them down and used authentico chalk paint, they needed two coats. I then used the Annie Sloan decoupage and this was the end result.
