Mod Podge Mania Time!

Yay! It's Mod Podge Mania time again :-D I love that Xazmin hosts this every month because it inspires me to keep going with my Mod Podge and challenges me to be creative.

For today, I revamped a night stand for my son's puppy nursery. Here's the B&A:


The scrapbooking paper I had on hand from a package I picked up at Goodwill. The little wooden puppy came from Michael's and cost less than a dollar even though he came already painted and everything. Cute, huh?!


I'm really happy with the way it turned out!


I didn't repaint the outside because I like the light blue color, but I did paint the inside of the drawer:


I Mod Podged both the table top and the bottom of the drawer. I love attention to detail! I think the pop of color and whimsy when you open the drawer is a pleasant surprise! I like when the inside of drawers are painted colors! And the best part is you can be really bold with your color choice because it's not seen the majority of the time :-)

To attach the puppy on drawer, I just removed one of his felt spots, nailed him on, and then glued the spot back where it came from. Probably not the best way to do it, but it certainly worked. I also used a little wood glue:


If you have any trouble with a drawer sticking after you paint it, you can just run a bar of soap along the sides and it will start to slide easy peasy ;-)


Can't wait to see every one's projects for today! If you want to see more Mod Podge projects too, head over to Xazmin's! :-)

Very creative. I would say I would try this but the last thing I need is another hobby. I'm supposed to be a scrapper...yeah that's not going well. No time to scrap. I have a scrap blog with ONE bootleg project posted.

I love it! I am so painting the inside of all my kids' drawers! The puppy drawer pull adds the perfect touch, and I LOVE the paper!

What a fantastic idea!! My daughter has a table very similar to yours, so I'll definitely give that a try. Too cute!

That is awesome! And I never would have thought of using soap! I'm gonna be doing that to a few of my drawers now! ;)

I love this! I've decoupaged many a dresser in our house but never thought about tackling the drawers! Love that hit of color--what a super idea, thank you!
