Nothing Like Furniture as Art!

Oh wowzas. She took soooo long to do! I was given this dresser and thought - I need to do something fun. I saw this old card and of course, the Queen of Hearts is ideal for a nice shape. I blew the card up to see the details better and then got out the paint brushes. A month later, she's done! Well, not quite, I still need to add hardware to open the drawers. And maybe push the drawers in properly for a photo shoot, but man o man I am just so happy she is done! First time around I painted her black, then when she was done I thought no no no she needs to be red. And there you have it. The Queen of Hearts!
I knowwwwwwww I forgot to push in the drawers. The excitement to be done got to me!

    What size did she cut the picture in order to decoupage it on the chest and with what kind of glue did she use. Was there a protective coating over it.
