Materials List

Instructions

  1. Place the dresser on a drop cloth. Paint the entire dresser with lilac paint. With FolkArt Home Decor Chalk you will not need a primer. Use 2 or 3 coats of paint until the desired color is reached. Make sure to allow for dry time in between coats.

  2. Cut out the design from a poster. For this design, we used an Audrey Hepburn poster. Tape the poster onto the front of the dresser for placement. Make sure the eyes or important features are centered on a drawer. 

  3. Trim the poster into strips to fit the fronts and back edges of the drawers. 

  4. Working with one poster strip at a time, coat the back of the poster strip with Furniture Mod Podge. Position onto the dresser. Smooth with your fingers to remove any air bubbles. Wait 15 minutes and then top with more Mod Podge. Continue this process until each strip is in the proper place. 

  5. Attach sticky-back gems to highlight areas of the poster. We added them to the necklace, earrings, and tiara area.
