I enjoy working with Mod Podge and discovering all the different projects I can create with it. I saw lots of posts on Pinterest where people used Mod Podge to decoupage furniture with objects like paper, leaves, fabric, etc. I thought it would be a good idea to use some of these techniques and give one of my chairs a makeover using wrapping paper, spray paint, and Mod Podge.
As you can see, this chair needs lots of attention. I started off by cleaning up the chair with warm water and soap. It was dusty and dirty from years of neglect.
After the cleaning, I took the chair outside and painted it with Krylon ColorMaster Paint+Primer (white,gloss). I used about two cans to fully cover the chair.
I didn’t do anything else to the chair until the next day. My personal preference is to let the paint settle on an object before I start working with it again.
On the next day, I began cutting the wrapping paper to fit the chair. This was the hardest part because the chair had some weird angles on one side. I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge on the chair and on the back of the paper with a foam brush. Then, I glued the paper to the chair while using my finger to help smooth out any bubbles.
I also used an X-acto Knife to help trim some of the wrapping paper.
I let the paper dry for 2-3 hours, then I sealed the chair with another layer of Mod Podge.
Here is the finished chair:
I think the chair looks awesome, and my husband also thought it was impressive. I might try this technique on some other furniture and with some different wrapping paper.
I hope you all like the chair. Please feel free to share and comment.

Does ModgePogde work on plastic? I am cheap and have lots of ugly plastic containers that could use a sprucing up.
Yes it does. I saw lots of projects on Pinterest using Modge Podge on plastic containers.
