Yup! Luv My Mod Podge!

Hello to all! I feel like time has gotten away with me this week. I haven’t even visited many of your blogs and linky party’s that I love. So sorry, I’ll do better.  Summer has been busy with having all four of my grands home at once, but it has been really fun and we have done a lot of creative projects together. I have also been able to sneak in a few of my own and I’m excited to share them with you.

I sure do love my mod podge. I have been dying to try it on an old dresser that I have. I knew that I wouldn’t hurt this old thing. This dresser is older that I am and very beat up. It’s one of those pieces of furniture that has been in the garage, closet, school, you name it, I’m pretty sure that this dresser has been in every one of my siblings rooms as well as their homes. When I moved into my first apartment it ended up with me, again! So I wanted to give it a pretty finish even though the drawers constantly squeaks every time I open and close them. lol   ~But I still love you~

I used the same process that I did on my other mod podge projects. If your interested just click here.

Before I did the mod podge, I painted the shell of the dresser with a light gray chalk paint. I also used my favorite crackle (click here for the crackle process) to give it that wonderful patina that I love. The dresser was painted in a flat french blue, I wanted that to show through the gray.

I love this process, you would never know that it was a new paint job. I can’t believe how I try to give my furniture an old look when most people want to make their furniture look new. lol But that’s just crazy me! lol

dresser drawers close

I used some vintage books for the top and the drawers. They have that nice worn out look! I even used some old sheet music and added vintage photos from books on it.

The dresser even got a sweet set of glass knobs. I had to make sure that all of the pages were proper for children’s little eyes, one is reading now and he keeps me on my toes. lol

So sorry I didn’t notice the little finger prints on the chalk board. Oh well. One thing about mod podge is that it leaves a nice surface after it is dry and I can wipe messy’s right off, and at my house that is a must.

I really like the way it turned out and it adds a lot of charm to my kitchen and added storage. I would love to hear about any of your projects that you are doing or if you have a temped a mod podge project.

Thank you for visiting my friends! Enjoy your day!

  1. Love the use of the old photos and books, and, oh, how I love the look of crackle! Amazing how just how a little imagination can liven up an old piece of furniture!

  2. I have one of ‘those’ dressers too…been around forever and could use a little tlc. Maybe you can come by and work your magic? 😉

  3. My old table that I use for cutting fabric (DH made risers for it so that it’s high enough for me) needs some tlc and this might be just the ticket! It’s old and battered and rather sad so would be much happier with a facelift. (btw – re the squeaky drawers – try rubbing a bar of soap onto the places where the drawers ‘rub’ – it works wonders, although it does have to be redone from time to time).

  4. Love it Jo! I love using Mod Podge as well. A couple years ago I painted an old armoire duck egg blue and I did the same thing with book pages on the shelf inside. Then I used it to apply cute floral scrapbook paper on the inside drawers. Fun surprise when you open it up. I love the images that you added! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  5. Jo, you did a great job on your dresser. Glad you have been spending time with your family. I mod lodged some little wooden boxes the other day. You will have to go check them out! Have a great week.
