How To: Decoupage a Chair

These new laminated and laquered chairs at Urban Outfitters (on the right) remind of us Petunia's project (left) that AT:Nursery blogged about a couple of weeks ago. UO offers the chair in three patterns: Petal, Braeburn and Windowpane.

We're not sure any of UO's patterns fit with our decor, so we thought going the DIY route like Petunia might be a good idea. Here's what we would do:

  1. Cut out the images that will be used for decoupaging. We recently bought several books in the "Petit Pattern" series. The books, which include CDs with all graphics in EPS and JPEG format, provide plenty of great options.
  2. Using a foam brush (available at any craft store), apply a craft glue like Mod Podge to the back of the image.
  3. Place the image on to the chair and apply a layer of glue on top.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the images and allow to dry completely before sitting on the chair.

Does anyone have advice to share for a project like this?
