How to Decoupage Furniture with Napkins a Table

Decoupage and furniture. They go together like soup and sandwich. Goodwill is one of my favorite places to shop. Not only do I find these romantic little pieces of unwanted furniture, but I feel good knowing that the money I spend is actually helping people who need it. Don’t get me wrong though, I won’t pass up a piece of furniture for a good deal on Craigslist or at a garage sale either. I’m proud to say that this video is my most popular video with the most comments and views on Youtube. I have a little space I created for myself downstairs that is all girl. A shabby  white wicker day bed with sheer white curtains and tiny white lights surrounding me. I hesitate to say it’s in the basement. It is though. Our home reflects a symbiosis of our two styles, both mine and my husbands. He prefers a more contemporary look while I want a couch that you can fall into.  Back to our table here though. As soon as I found this I knew it needed to be revived. Some chalk paint, napkins and a little bit of time and it had a brand new life. So you’re aware, I like to use a matte decoupage glue because it’s a lot easier to add gloss to matte finish than it is to degloss a shiny finish. This video was made a few years ago and since then I’ve come to appreciate a product called Liquitex matte varnish even more. It gives the flattest finish, and it’s just not an easy thing to do. Napkins are also something that like your favorite cosmetics, get discontinued. Bummer right? I wish I had more control over that.  The napkins that I used on this table are one of my all time faves.  You can purchase the napkin below or click on the link and search for something more specific. Try searching for French napkins, floral napkins, hydrangea napkins, whatever you think would look best on your furniture.  The products needed and the links to purchase them or just read about them are right next to them. Since I am an Amazon Associate it really helps me to continue making my DIY videos.  If you have Amazon Prime all of the same features apply here and you can still shop for anything else you may need while you’re here!
