Weekend Project | Cupboard with Decoupage Doilies

This week's inspiration/idea for a weekend project is this adorable decoupaged wardrobe found in the May '13 issue of Ideas Magazine using vintage doilies. The ivory and white on white makes for a subtle romantic piece and the project could be translated onto any furniture piece (like a back of a chair, an old dresser, etc).  I love this. The how-to is pretty much your regular decoupage technique;

1. Clean surface
2. Sand
3. Apply the piece your decoupaging (using masking tape)
4. Coat using a sponge roller with one layer of mod podge, let dry, repeat with another layer of mod podge, dry and then finish with a coat of varnish.

You can get the exact how-to from Ideas Magazine (May issue) - I picked up my copy through Zinio.com .  Photo by Ed O'Riley | Project by Lizel Cloete, Ciskia Hanekom and Jeanne Potgieter for Ideas Magazine. Happy Weekend!
