So What Have I Been Doing?

Last Saturday I decided to do exactly what I wanted to do ….. so I plonked myself down at the care worn Ikea table in my utility room, tuned into Radio 4……..
Decopatch Table.
…… and did this …….
Decopatch Table 1
Oh my life!!  I have since given it six coats of varnish  …… and I absolutely love it.  It’s not finished yet though, there are six drawers of assorted sizes  to Decopatch as well, so guess what I am planning on doing this weekend? 
I find Decopatch very soothing and relaxing …… so be warned, there is a lot more Decopatch to come ….. hmmmmm is it me or is the bath panel looking a bit boring …….??????

Doing the washing in that room will now be an enlightening experience! I love the table, good luck with the drawers.

Wow, this is absolutely fabulous. It must have taken you ages to do but what a great result. I have seen decoupatch stands at craft shows and have been tempted but haven't tried it yet. I thought you had to use a 'special' type of paper to do this. Am I right? Think I need a tutorial!!
Well done, it looks great.
