Inspirationavenue /melange



I am taking you back to 2005.
Decoupaged dresser, 18"x35"
If you don't know already, I am a gardener and love flowers!
I used my seed packets(empty!), pictures from garden catalogs and garden magazines, favorite little images, and assorted papers.
Elmers glue, cut, paste, smooth out. Then 6 coats of varathene !
It is upstairs in the hall and holds old photos because it is cedar lined. It was in my mother-in-laws bedroom.

Oh Peggy, this is gorgeous. I love what you did with it. No wonder you have such a lovely garden. I was so surprised to see it is a chest with an under drawer or di you make it that way by eliminating a drawer? What a wonderful heirloom you've created. (
