Mod Podge Map Dresser

I admit when I found this awesome map, I had no idea what I was going to do with it.

Until I came across the flattest piece of furniture that I had ever seen :)Mod Podge Map dresser

The perfect map joined together with the flattest dresser :)
A match made in Mod Podge heaven!

Combos like this don’t come around that often!

Have you found any perfect matches?

    Debbie … you are amazing! That is one incredibly “mod-lodged” dresser. Are you beyond thrilled with how it turned out? I know I would be!

    Debbie, this is just gorgeous. You turned a ho-hum dresser into something fabulous.

    I always forget to Mod Podge. Now you have me inspired.

    Love this project, Debbie! My partner tried this on a dresser, but the edges of the drawers had some curvature that she just couldn’t navigate successfully with the map and mod podge. Your dresser was the perfect choice!
    Hope you and yours have a very happy Thanksgiving!

    Love this! I have a blah Ikea dresser that needs something and this might be what it needs. Now I just need to figure out what to put on the drawers. Oh just love this.

    I have some charts like that my dh was going to get rid of (I snagged them of course!). I hope to MP to a desk top someday – never thought of drawer fronts, brilliant! I’m wondering what paint you used?

    As I perused Pinterest today, I came across your dresser. I immediately recognized the geography of the map you used! It’s my home, Hilton Head, SC and the surrounding waters and mainland. How delightful! What a fun project!

    I am new to the modge podge seen, but I love doing it. I just had a question for you. I’m assuming the map was big enough to cover the dresser, but what if I have say a picture of a flower that’s approximately 8″ x 11″ and I want it to fit on an entire dresser. How would I do that? I’m assuming I would have to take it to somewhere like Office Depot to have it blown up, but not sure. I know my home printer couldn’t do that because it don’t take paper larger than an 8x 11. Please advise….Thanks a bunch.

      Yes, you’d have to measure your dresser and go to a pro-printer to see if the size is available. Good Luck! When you’re finished with your project, share it on our FB page, refreshrestyle
