50's Design

By Laura Johnson-Hernandez, Owner and Design Artist at Designs by Laura in South St Paul, MN.

This mid century chest was beat up and had deep scratches into the wood.  I decided the best option was to decoupodge the piece to hide the deep marks.  I painted the piece lamp black than measured and cut the poster to fit well onto the drawers, than I used modpodge to adhere the pieces.  Once it had set into place and dried I lightly sanded the edges and parts of the poster to give it an aged appearance.  It found its new home for family media center room.
