How to Decoupage a Bookcase with Scrapbook Paper
It’s time again for Themed Furniture Makeover Day, where a bunch of us bloggers each share a new furniture makeover with a different theme every month. This month’s theme is Animals – there are a lot of unique possibilities with this one. At the end of this post you can see all my friends’ makeovers with links to their blogs.

I grabbed my trusty matte Mod Podge and foam brush…
then measured and cut my paper with my handy dandy paper cutter (an awesome and pretty inexpensive tool) and glued the sheets in place.

It has kind of a French look to it, don’t you think?
And here’s your before/after comparison:
