Skulls & Anchors! Decoupage

Nest Table’s Up-cycled

Hey Guys

So I started up-cycling one of two nest tables today.

They are ply-wood so they didn’t need sanding.

I started on the smaller one today because I need to fix the leg on the bigger one.

Here’s how I did it!

I gave it two coats of white under coat and than started the chalk  painting.

Chalk paint dries surprisingly fast so I coated it twice and then set out to decide on my decoupage design xx

I find these tattoo ideas magazine great for decoupage.

Eventually I decided on these two.

When you decide where you want to place your decoupage, you first paint the varnish/glue directly on the desired area, place the paper down and paint the glue/varnish over it!

(I used Annie Sloan decoupage glue/varnish from Twenty six Electric Mix, a fab shop in Nenagh, Co Tipperary)

Then coat that twice or as much as needed.

You then need to coat the whole area otherwise they will be a noticeable difference in the colour.

BOOM! You are done

It really is that easy!
