    Oh HELP! I want to decopage on a chalk painted bookcase. Do I apply the decopage before or after waxing?

      @Marty's Musings I'm applying vintage wallpaper this time...the glue is so old it no longer sticks, so will have to use Mod Podge or Elmer's, but sometimes I apply paper, vintage maps, letters, etc. Will be applying fabric to a future project, though. Sometimes I glue trim to a piece. I usually use clear wax just to seal and brighten the chalk paint. So decopage (or glue) before or after waxing? BTW, I LOVE your hutch! It really turned out well.

      @Lulusugarcookie All the details are in the link but we had a quart of each color. There are other brands that you can use now that are less expensive like DecoArt chalk paint at Home Depot.

    Very nice. Could the design on the doors be easily removed if you didn't like the look?

      I removed all the design on my bedroom furniture for a smooth front . It looked like wood but was actually a molded plastic nailed in place, the old Mediterranean style. A few small nail holes to be filled . Used screwdriver and hammer to pry off. Was Bassett I believe from 70s
