Music & Decopage Glue!








After painting many hutchs,desks,tables,chairs,and so on, i really like being creative and trying to think of different things to make or ways of designing or re-finishing an item. SO when my husband brought me this little treat home I was over joyed in an opportunity to try something new.
SO this dark cabinet was a little dreary,so i decided to 1.Paint in a heirloom white, slightly distressing it to bring out the details (that i love so much) 3. use old music book sheets to decopage the back of cabinet ( i ran out so had to use my blk-white printer to copy some of the sheets) & acutually gave it a more unique look. 4. I spray glued the back of cabinet-then put all the sheets on randomly & then used decopage glue to seal it 5. then i lightly used a polyurathane to seal all edges and shelves.. A little Different, but unique and the total cost $15 ($8.99 for cabinet,.50cents for old music book, $5.00 for paint & already had polyurathane and decopage glue).
Not so Bad for this little musical cutie!
