Point being we recently donated two old IKEA drawer units to our good friends and gaybours who recently moved into a new apartment. Then the boys messaged us up and let us know they wanted to decoupage the drawer units with black and white Japanese Manga. Inspired idea as Fabian (friend in question whose room the units will reside in) is as big a Man-Boy as I.
The boys had the first editions Japanese language Manga of Death Note, Naruto and my personal fav, Full Metal Alchemist to plaster all over the wood. My inner geek was having a nerdgasam at the prospect. Kicking myself, why could have I thought of this? No matter at least I was allowed to be involved with the whole process.
It was clear I definitely learned from mine and Husband's mistakes from our first attempt at the process. The PVA glue was watered down to a more spreadable dilute, placement of each comic page with utmost care to ensure the lack of air-bubbles. Maybe because the end result was for someone else was what lead to my absolute care taking with the process. It paid off though. Between the 3 of us we managed to create something that we should be completely proud of. The boys painted the drawers white to match the over all look and voila.
Really ties the room together don't you think? Well done boys, these are fantastic and a vast improvement on the original. Who knew something that cost €20 in IKEA could look this amazing.
