Tissue Paper Transformation

Easy
An old, falling apart curio cabinet just needed some TLC. The back was falling off, the mirrors had been broken, and the wood finish was worn. Add a some beadboard decoupaged with dollar store tissue paper, and a little paint, and you've got a shabby chic, eye-catching piece! The method is simple and only takes some Elmer's glue and a bit of time. Come see the full reveal on the blog.
This vintage styled curio cabinet had been stuck in a corner looking sad and forlorn.
With some layers of stain, paint, and beadboard decoupaged with tissue paper, this piece is taking on a new life.
Doesn't it look like that paper has been there for years?
I invite you to come see how this piece has been transformed to a show-stopper.
