My son needed some more storage space and this three drawer little dresser seemed
Brown Paper Bags
1. Start with your brown paper bags. Tear them, crumble them, and then unwrinkle them. I cut a few with straight edges or straight corners to make it easier to place them on the drawers.
2. Cover your desired piece of furniture with Modge Podge a section at a time. Place brown paper sack pieces on one by one. Make sure to smooth each one out and modge podge over the top. ( I used a small paint brush) I was not a perfectionist on the wrinkles because I wanted some character and texture.
3. Cover the whole design again with a generous layer of Modge Podge. The first few times I used Modge Podge, I never used enough. See picture below to fully understand how much to use.
4. After the brown paper sack design dried, I used an old t-shirt to apply wood stain (MinWax) on top. You can see the difference it makes in color and shading at the bottom of the following picture.
5. Now that my drawers were complete, I moved on to the rest of the dresser. I primed the entire wooden dresser with two coats of primer.
6. I chose to spray paint it green to match my son's room. (I thought the contrast of black would have looked even better...but it would not have matched)
7. I painted my knobs and put them back on.
It turned out just perfect for his room decor. What are you going to "brown bag"?
