Transform Your Furniture Using a Photo

Flickr member Karen Breen-Bondie transformed her Ikea cabinet with a photo.
Recently, we blogged transforming your furniture with paint. Here's another finishing option that uses a photo. We've been considering this look since we saw a file cabinet that was given a similar treatment 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. Although we don't believe Ikea carries the Finnby any longer, we think the Grimle 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.
