How to Decorate a Wardrobe with Decoupage

completed robe decoupage on doors
I wanted to make my old wardrobe 'pop' with some unique form of decoration, so I decided to decoupage the doors.
For the decoupage images I selected people in beds of flowers.
This was a style of decoupage I had seen years before in Mietta's at Queenscliffe, and I loved it, so I decided to try and recreate the effect of that work.
So I chopped up some old art books *ACK!* and used the portrait images to layout around the doors.
Then I selected giftwrap paper with beautiful floral designs and chopped those up.
I also selected some images with a bit of 'landscape' in the background of the portraits, so that they eyes would have a bit of a 'window' to escape through, rather than becoming overwhelmed by the flowers and people and have 'nowhere to go' to escape the overall image of the panels.
I think that the compositions worked well, for the very first attempt at using decoupage to decorate furniture!
The wardrobe is still in my spare room, that I'm converting into a craft room.
For a while I had it in the lounge room with the TV and stereo etc. as a nice way to hide the electrical systems in the lounge, as all my furniture and decor is 'antique' style.
So, once the images were glued in place, I pained a layer of glue mix on top of it, and then a layer of estapol.
And more than 10 years later it still looks wonderful to me.
