Vintage Decoupaged Chest

Hello Friends...

Arpita here,Today I have decoupaged a 3 drawer chest with a vintage look . Also have a step by step pictorial tutorial.

Start by sanding your mdf base,though I did not sand as my base had a very smooth finish but otherwise sanding is necassary as it will help you achieve a neat finish for the final look.
