Alternative to Painting Ugly Furniture




I've got some a big book full of old sheet music and an ugly chair. I'm trying it!

What You'll Need:
Old Comics, fabric, sheet music, etc
PVA Glue
Clear Matte acrylic varnish
Brushes
Scissors

Step 1:

Cut out small strips from your comics and stick them in place on the chair using a PVA glue, which has been diluted with water to turn it into a thin liquid. Cover the chair completely, making sure the pieces are smooth, and flat with no loose edges or gaps, then leave to dry.

Step 2:
Apply several coats of clear matt acrylic varnish over the comic strips. Make sure you leave each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next, to ensure a hard-wearing, protective coating.
