Why buy new when you can decoupage?
Decoupage is a fantastic way of breathing life back into old household items without spending an absolute fortune. Better still it’s quite literally cutting and sticking so with the right materials, anyone can do it! If you’ve got an old chest of drawers you’d like to zhoosh up (zhoosh is a word, we promise!) or some storage boxes in need of a refresh, decoupage is the perfect cheap and easy option.
