Hello I’m Jennifer and in this video I’m going to show you a beautiful furniture makeover that I did using embroidered fabric and some Mod Podge. So stay tuned. So we needed a certain sized piece of furniture in our bedroom and I found one but it wasn’t the look I was wanting.
So, I thought, okay I’m gonna give it a furniture makeover and the first thing I did was I sanded the top and stained it and then coated it. Then, I painted the rest of the furniture kind of a creamy off-white but it still was kind of bland and I kind of have a French Country look going in the bedroom.
So I thought you know what if you look at the doors there’s an inset in them. I thought that would be a beautiful place to put some fabric. Let me show you the fabric I chose. I chose an embroidered fabric, just stunning and it’s going to mimic the look as if this furniture had been hand painted.
Now, I’ve got my fabric cut out, I’m ready to add it to the furniture and I’m going to apply the Mod Podge with a brush. It just kind of makes it easier. So, I’m going to use just a little bit and I’m going to start at the top and I’m gonna do a little bit of fabric at a time because I want to make sure it gets on there super smooth.
So, just keep adding the Mod Podge all the way down just a little bit at a time so it helps keep your fabric smooth and then we’re going to move on to the next step. Now that you have the fabric on, it’s time to coat the front of the fabric with the Mod Podge.
The Mod Podge has dried and they do make a product that actually you put over top that seals it it. If I had fabric on top of a piece of furniture, I would seal it but because it’s on the edge and I don’t want anything that makes it look shiny because I want people to think this has been hand-painted, I’m done.
This is the knob that came on the piece of furniture but this is the one I found at Hobby Lobby. So, just painting this furniture, adding fabric and new doorknobs made this such a beautiful custom piece.
It looks way more expensive than it was. Be sure to think outside the box. Shop Craigslist, shop Facebook marketplace, find an old piece of furniture and give it a furniture makeover. Hey guys, I wanted to take a second to share something with you a little bit personal.
My oldest son at the age of 15 was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He is now married with children and has started his own YouTube channel all about dealing with diabetes. His latest video has gone viral.
It is a very humorous perspective on dealing with diabetes and the video is called if Blood Sugar Could Talk. I would absolutely love it if you guys could watch it and share, thank you. Thank you so much for watching.
