Cut Wrapping Paper

Cut out the pattern from your paper. Use decoupage glue to adhere the paper to the dresser in a random pattern. Spread the decoupage glue on both the bottom and top of the paper. Make sure no edges are sticking up. Let it dry completely.

Apply Sealer

Cover the dresser in a clear glossy sealer. Apply two coats, let it dry between coats.

Replace Hardware

Put the handles and hardware back on the dresser.
