Friends….I have a glitter obsession….I mean shoes, shirts, accessories and now furniture pieces thanks to my new favorite Mod Podge ® Extreme Glitter. What I love about this kind of glitter crafting is it skips the messy step of sprinkling glitter on glue (we all know how well the glitter actually sticks :/ ) because it’s already incorporated into it. I also love that Mod Podge® is so much more than a glue. It’s a sealer and a finisher for decoupage and other crafts. Did you know that there are many different kinds of Mod Podge®? Here is a fun guide that can help you decide just what kind works best with the project you are working on. I can’t wait to try out the Glow-in-the-Dark kind. I think my kids will love it!
Now that I have a daughter, my childhood love of all things princesses has returned. I really enjoy being able to incorporate things I adored as a little girl into her room. I have also loved these floor to ceiling canopy’s and it was the inspiration behind my princess dress nightstand redo. I was able to take an old nightstand that you could probably find in most thrift stores and turn it into something special with just a few simple supplies. Here is what the nightstand looked like before the magical transformation some tulle and Mod Podge® created.
- Mod Podge, I used Extreme Glitter
- Mod Podge Decoupage Paint Set
- Hot Glue Gun
I decided I wanted to give the nightstand a fresh coat of paint. Following the directions of the container, I used Delta Ceramcoat ® Chalk Paint in White Lace and painted on about three coats.
Next, I took a 12 inch x 12 inch piece of scrapbooking paper and laid in on top of the drawer. I traced the shape of the drawer and cut it out slightly larger. Depending on the size of your drawer, if you have one, you may need a few pieces of scrapbooking paper. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different patterns on your drawer. I applied a layer of Mod Podge, Extreme Glitter to the front side of the drawer and also to the back of the scrapbooking paper. I carefully placed the scrapbooking paper on top and smoothed out any bubbles working from the middle out. I added another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper. I let it sit until it was completely dry and carefully trimmed the edges with an E-xacto knife. In the below picture you can see how I still needed to trim the top edge.
I also added some of the Mod Podge, Extreme Glitter to the butterfly knob I found at a local craft store. I used Plaid’s newest Mod Podge Brush Set, Decoupage for the butterfly knob and I used the Mod Podge® Furniture Decoupage Set when working with the actual nightstand.
I used about 1 yard of tulle for this project. The amount you may need will be determined by how big your table or project piece is. I simply cut the tulle into long triangle shapes and hot glued the pieces to the underside of the table. There really is no wrong to do this. You can cut your tulle into long strips as well. It all depends on the look you want. Once I added the tulle, I went around and trimmed it so it didn’t go past the nightstand legs and added more different length pieces to give it more dimension. If you do decide to hot glue your pieces as I did, please be careful as the glue is hot and will go through the holes of the tulle.
I added the butterfly knob and gave the top of the nightstand a nice layer of Mod Podge, Extreme Glitter as well. I even used my brush and brushed on some Mod Podge, Extreme Glitter on the top layer of tulle. Don’t worry it dries clear. I wish I could show you just how beautiful the glitter is. As my daughter gets older I know she will just love this. She can store stuff behind the tulle and in the drawer.
