With all of the recent super hero movies, my 8 yr old son has become a huge fan. I decided that we would decoupage his dresser with old comic books.
Now, I am the worst with taking before and after pictures. I was half way through the project before I decided to take any pictures. But you can see here, the original look and the new decoupaged look.
I purchased 12 comic books with various different super heros at the flea market. I tried to get a mix of old and newer comics, so I would have a contrast of graphics.
I covered the drawer fronts, sides, and top of the dresser. For this project, I used 1 bottle of Mod Poge. I did not use to whole bottle for my project, so I do have some left for another project.
My plan is also to take out all of the drawers and paint the front black. I think that it will really make the drawers pop out more. It will also give a comic book panel look.
My next step is to covert these kid's meal toys into drawer pulls. I need 12 total, 2 for each drawer. I am still searching for a few more to use. I had picked these up at the flea market. My plan is to drill holes into them and using screws and washers to create new drawer pulls.
It is still a work in progress and I can't wait to get these finished. I will post an update on how I am making the drawer pulls and the finished project.
This project has been rather inexpensive for me to create. Here is the breakdown.
Mod Poge- reg. $7.99 (I used a Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon) price after coupon w/tax $5.87
Comic Books- $6 I was able to get comic books 2 for $1.
Toys- so far, I have spent $2 on the dresser pulls. I figure, I will spend about $6 total on these once I find everything I need.
