by interior decorator Mary McDonald
. You can use an old photograph or even a piece of wallpaper. Here, Flickr member Karen Breen-Bondie applied her photo to Ikea's Finnby console. For more details on how she did it, click here

buffet would be a good substitute. We could also see this working well on a generic pine dresser. And, of course, on a file cabinet.
