miss mod


This week, the sun finally came out from hiding.
Hello, sunshine. It's been too long.

I though I'd share a little project with you.
Here is the 'before'...


This little ugly duckling was waiting for me at the thrift. As much as I love patchwork and polka dots, they weren't working together in this little set of drawers (8"tall by 5"wide). 
But, as the price was only a dollar, I thought I can do something with this... 


One of my girls made the little green polka dotted heart. 
I added it for your viewing pleasure...
you can thank me later.


Are you ready for the 'after'?


Ta da...


After a little work with Miss Mod Podge
 and an assortment of my favorite prints,
she's all good. 


This was my first foray into the land of decoupage.
Now, I find myself looking around and thinking, hmmm...
what's next?

Have a great weekend, my friends.

I love decoupage. Can't believe this is your first time, as this is just adorably done! Tell your girl that that's some darned fine sewing too.

Molly!
What a incredible transformation, great job! I just went through all your posts and was so delighted in your style, home and lovely girls! Your use of color is terrific, your posts light and fun! I look forward to future visits! P.S Loved your button wreath where you added thread to each button rather than plain buttons. Lori
