ARTICLES DE PARIS GRAPHIC ON A DRESSER - french furniture makeover





While the ONE MONTH TO WIN IT craft competition
was on I stopped in to see all the project for the week
and to cast my vote. There are 12 competitors that start
and each week there is a required subject to work with.
The first week brought many diy projects using graphics 
from THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. This inspired me to
create my own graphic project. 




It just so happened there was a great lingerie chest revamp (SHOWN BELOW) that
definitely stuck out in the competition and I love a great furniture redo.
It was by FREDDY AND PETUNIA in WI.

Mean while back in Canada,
I had a dresser stuck in limbo needing a little inspiration, or maybe a lot.


I went searching for a suitable image on the THE GRAPHICS FAIRY site and found this one:
Different graphic transfer methods can be found here


I used Sharpie Colored Markers on this DIY project.
Michaels has tons of Sharpie Markers for all sorts of projects.
Who could ask for more than paint in a pen.
I used 2 brown paint pens to complete this dresser.
Once it was all done the image was too sharp and new (Above)
so I sanded the drawer faces for an authentic aged look (Below)


Lastly I waxed and buffed the over the graphic.
See that nice shine below.
