Steamer Trunk Inspired Curbside Chest of Drawers Makeover
This chest of drawers was rescued from the curbside and I decided to turn it into a Steampunk/Steamer Trunk inspired chest. I created the faux leather drawers with brown paper bags and the rivets were created with inexpensive wooden hole plugs from Home Depot. Total cost to makeover this chest was $2

I absolutely love this and when I get brave enough I will try it.
how did you affix the paper to the dresser? what type of stain did you use? what kind of sealer? is this durable?
Love it, would like to try it. Wondering if it is done same as I have seen tutorials of brown paper floors. Isn't it a mixture of Elmer's glue the brown paper bags are soaked in?
