Garden Treasures with Modge Podge

This is a sponsored post.

Welcome, friends!

I had such a great time working on this project for The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest! This month's theme is Garden Treasures and is sponsored by Modge Podge.

I think what I loved about it most about this piece was that I got to be super creative and add in a truly special detail using my Modge Podge.

But, before I get into exactly what I did, here is the before. It's another one of those pieces that I can envision the outcome immediately, but leaves my family wondering why I would ever have bought this!

I removed the hardware and patched the holes (along with lots of gouges) and removed the drop down desk.  My youngest painted it in a summery bamboo green and I distressed, aged it and added on simple wood knobs.

I found this beautiful butterfly paper that complimented the theme of this month's contest so well. I love the colors and that it focuses on the beauty of summer outside.

I cut my paper to the length and width of my drawer sides.

And, adhered them using the instructions on the bottle. This was so much easier than I thought. Don't be intimidated!

Here it is, all finished! I think it's so unexpected and elevates a simple piece to the next level.

You can use this piece in virtually every room in your home (including as a cat hang out apparently,) but how sweet would it be left with the drawers opened like this and filled with flowers on a covered porch!
