I am deeply sorry that I have not posted my dresser. Unfortunately, it has taken much longer to finish than I had intended. So, I continue posting blogs about other things that I am working on.
Mom was cleaning her room and found this candlestick. Now, I have the same candlestick in my bedroom. I covered it in newspaper by means of decoupage and love how it looks. So, I decided to do the same thing for this candlestick. And here is what I used.
I had a newspaper that my roommates and I got for free, mod poge from Michaels, sponge brushes, a small bowl to put the mod poge in, paper towels, and tv shows to watch as I was decoupaging.
I tore the newspaper into small pieces to make it easier to decoupage onto the candlestick. I then got the sponge brush damp with the mod poge and lightly coated it over the piece of newspaper. Because newspaper is thin, it doesn’t require that much mod poge to make it stick to the candlestick. I used only pieces with words on them because I was afraid of the color from pictures bleeding through.
So after two nights of mod poging, approximately 4 hours of work, the candlestick was complete!
Currently it is sitting on my Salvation Table, which you can see here, along with some of mom’s decorations. I might be taking this to my apartment to decorate in the living room area. I like the look of the newspaper, something that could be modern or vintage looking. This project was fun and something that I know I will be doing more of this summer!
