Funky Furniture made new with Fabric decoupaged on to the drawers.  Sealed with clear poly for a lasting finish.

Kimberly used decoupage with fabric on a metal file cabinet project on the Junk Beautiful DVD and shared how to do it. I think I may give it a shot now!

Thanks for the great post!

I saw on TV that they took burlap and stretched it over a table and poured a can of poly over it and it was really cool! It adds so much texture to pieces that don't usually have texture.
