How To Decoupage Dresser Drawers - With Napkins!

Welcome back!  Last week you saw a garage sale dresser transformed with paint and decoupaged napkins.  If you missed it, click here

Today I have a little tutorial showing how it was done.  Let's get started, shall we?

The drawers were sanded down to bare wood and the edges were painted black to match the rest of the dresser.  The napkins were found at the Dollar Store.
Notice they are 2-ply napkins?  You only need one, so separate those layers! Iron the one-layer.  It helps when you are ready to lay it down on the wet decoupage medium.   Since the napkins were not wide enough to cover the entire drawer, I was going to have to piece them together.  These napkins also had a very definite pattern that was going to need matching, so it was time for some measuring.  I found the middle of the drawer and matched it to the middle of the napkin.  Then I marked the edges of the napkin on the edge of the drawer with chalk.  See the white (chalk) dot? There are actually two of them as guides for …

The Poplar Chest of Drawers

It's been a bit of a whirlwind around here with cutting and sanding.  Winter will be here before we know it and it will be too cold for those activities!  
So, I bring to you - this little chest of drawers that was advertised on a garage sale site:
This is a small chest, only about 40 inches tall, but perfect for small-space living.  Advertised on-line, it looked like this: It had that lovely orange, 1940's look, but it was solid wood.  The original plan was to paint it black and give the drawers a lovely stain to show-off the wood grain.  Out came the sander and here's what I found: Poplar!   Poplar is and inexpensive hardwood. The tell-tale green tint gives it away.  It is usually painted because poplar is notorious for being 'blotchy' when stained.   On to Plan B!  After all, it was solid wood and and the drawers were dovetailed. The chest itself was painted with 2 coats of Ink Chalk Paint (available at your local discount store that begins with a 'W'), distres…

The Cottage Is Sold!

You may remember, several weeks ago, I mentioned some 'Big News".  Well, here it is...we sold the Cottage.  We didn't plan it, it just happened, really!  Are you ready for the story?

Last July I was sitting in the front yard weeding the flower beds, when a car drove by a few times and finally stopped.  The woman asked me if I knew anything about the house next door.  It had a FSBO sign with no contact information.  I told her the only thing I knew was that it was a 3-bedroom house and the owners were rarely home.

We continued to chat about houses, etc. when I told her that my husband always says for the right price, you can have ours!  She thought I was kidding and I informed her that I wasn't.  My husband heard us talking and came out on the porch to join in the conversation. We chatted for a while and just 'hit it off'.

Finally, we asked if she'd like to see the house.  She said she would. After being in the house for about five minutes, she turned to us an…
