Paper decoupage is one of my favorite kind of crafting. My first ever paper decoupage was an Eye Glasses Case which turned out pretty interesting. Then I decoupage my cell phone casing. I have decoupaged many products & crafts so far. It’s always fun to play with paper pieces & crafting with paper scrap or motifs. Have you ever tried decorating something with paper scrap or paper motifs? I recently decoupage a wooden corner shelf which turned out so well really.Today I am going to share that decoupaged corner shelf which I have designed with some motifs from a paper sheet which we usually use for gifts wrapping.
Have a look how I have designed this wooden corner shelf with paper pieces & mod podge. It’s super easy & will hardly take your 10 minutes to transform a dull look into an attractive space. Let’s have a look :
How To Decoupage Corner Shelf
This image seems OK but if you will look at the BEFORE image, Then you will appreciate it more. Actually this wooden shelf installed in the corner of the room & then the room wall paint done. There were paint stains and spots all over this wooden corner shelf. I wanted to paint it in golden color as the curtains of this room are in golden shade. But suddenly I changed my mind & tried decoupage directly on the shelf.
Glue or mod podge
Applicator or spatula
I measure the shelf space where I was going to paste the sheet. Then I cut some circle motifs from the sheet accordingly. Cutting takes hardly 10 minutes & in 5 more minutes pasting was done. This is just 15 minutes project & super easy too. All you need to do is CUT & PASTE. That’s it.
I cut a triangle of paper & apply glue on the shelf surface. Paste properly & try not to make any folds. Make the surface plain. Then paste the circle motifs one by one.
Okay so this was the before image of shelf with wall paint spots. As it was wooden surface, I was unable to remove the paint from it easily. By the way do you know any hack about removing the paint from wooden surfaces? OMG I forgot searching this hack on pinterest? Pheww.. Well I am glad to see my pinterests followers crossed 12k recently. Thank you everyone for following me on Pinterest. Life is easy with only a few original hacks over pinterest.
