Steampunk Decoupage on Vintage Luggage Redesigned Sidetable
For this piece I used the Grace on Design decoupage paper "Katerina" I used the iron-on method of decoupage using Country Chic Paint Clear Coat and Miss Lillians Patina and metallic for that rusty crusty goodness.
Steampunk and patina are a match made in heaven!
This vintage luggage had seen a better day, it was old and worn and I knew it would make the perfect redesign the moment I saw it.
I chose the Grace on Design decoupage pack "Katerina" this pack comes with three sheets, I used the large sheet for this project. These sheets are high quality, never folded, don't bleed and apply like a dream!
Even with proper application, a few issues can arise, no worries, if you have air bubbles or areas that didn't fully adhere, use a syringe and inject topcoat into them. The small injection site will not be visible and your paper will adhere down in that area.
I used the iron on method for this decoupage project, I applied two coats of Country Chic Paint clear coat, let those dry then used my iron with steam turned off, a piece of parchment paper and ironed the print to the surface!
I used Miss Lillians patina kit to give this a rusty crusty edgy vibe!
To give the legs stability I used a sheet of 3/4" plywood on the inside of the luggage to give the legs a strong foundation to grip into! I love hairpin legs! They can change a look on any piece in just moments!
