Decoupage with the stars themselves…

We were given this cabinet when a neighbour moved out. I forgot to take a proper before picture but you can see this cabinet was pretty boring!


We spray painted the inside with some midnight blue plasticoat…


…and photocopied a 50’s book called ‘The stars’ by H. A. Ray. It’s a fantastic book full of constellation maps, essentially written for children but it’s fascinating and the illustrations are lovely. Mum’s been busy cutting them up and sticking them all over with wallpaper paste.


When the whole thing was covered it was finished with a coat of clear varnish to seal it.
