Arts and Crafts with a Blogger: How to decoupage a file cabinet with comic book pages


This is SharonS. I needed a file cabinet for my new office and I wanted it to be fun and reflect what I Smell Sheep is about. I decided to decoupage it with comic book pages/covers.

1. Had to find a file cabinet. I went to Restore and got this on sale for $10.

2. Searched how to decoupage.

3. Bought the decoupage from AC Moore and picked up a bunch of comic books for $1/each at a local comic book show. Took some time to go through and pick out all the pages I wanted to use. Then Holly (my daughter) cut out some pics.

4. Decoupauge! Didn't take very long.

5. I bought some spray paint to do the drawer fronts. I couldn't decide between red, black or white. Still not sure I picked the right color...
6. Check out the awesome!


I'll post pictures once I get the office finished!

  5. That does look a lot of fun! I could use swag for this purpose I think. What will you put into that cabinet?
