Inspiration: DIY Decoupage Furniture

I adore Josef Frank textiles and furniture but since my budget does not allow for buying furniture via Christie's Auctions, I always just figured owning one of his decoupage dressers would remain a dream.

That was until I came across this wonderful idea via An Aesthete's Lament! With a carefully selected IKEA purchase, (pictures 4—7) a quick trip to a hardware or lumber store for wooden feet, (picture 8) and an afternoon or two of craftiness, I could have a pretty darn cool reproduction! Sourcing the beautiful botanical prints is likely the biggest challange but eBay is a good source (picture 9) or I could make my own. Design*Sponge offers a great how-to. (picture 10)
