DIY Graphic 45 Dresser

Bonnie created another Graphic 45 masterpiece! The new paper line "Couture" is fantastic on this unfinished wood dresser. A simple 5" x 7" frame is a unique addition!

Amanda loves Bonnie's new masterpiece!

Bonnie painted the dresser with Copper Metallic Paint. Once that was dry, she used Mod Podge to glue the Graphic 45 Couture scrapbook paper to the front, back, top of the dresser, and the front of the drawers. Then, she used Mod Podge again to glue a narrow strip of paper to the front of the black frame. Once everything was dry, she glued the frame to the back of the dresser and reinforced it with brackets.

The first thing that typically comes to mind when seeing an unfinished wooden item is to paint it. Remember, the opportunities for creativity are endless so experiment with papers, fabrics, metals, and different textures.
