I've been in a decoupage mode and feel compelled to alter things and give them a new lease on life...so this chair was one of those projects. It started as a white, ordinarty 11" wooden chair. I used some coffee-themed paper and cut a mosaic tile pattern for the seat and the upper back and then cut strips of the paper to cover long narrow areas. After sealing it with a matte finish I used a turquoise glazing and some brown paint to allow some the copy to show through. I love how it turned out and the dragonflies add a little touch of whimsy.
