decoupaged dresser

a  very  inexpensive   chest of  drawers  made over   with   careful  gluing of a  vintage   large  map of the United States .              I  used  clear  tubing for the  drawer pulls   threaded  wire through    and  twisted it in place inside    and placed a piece of  tape over the wire inside.

new glue




I   tried  a  few     different   glues  /pastes    in my work  and   found the  3  very  good   Nori is a  great  gel paste     paints on  smoothly  and   adhere's  very well .    the  collage  pauge    has a  glossy  finish   and yes  is  like  a  soap  it needs  water to make the paste     it also   sticks  well   all  3   glues  well   with less  wrinkling  and bubbling .  so I recommend   any  and all of them   .
