Decoupaged VIntage Mini Chest of Drawers

Decoupage has been on my mind for a very long time, and the hoarder that I am I have a carton full of MDF blanks - I have wishing wells, trays, boxes, some more boxes and lots more.
Before venturing to make this chest of drawers I decoupage a few boxes, so I was fairly confident that I would be able to pull this off.
I began by painting the entire surface with Gesso mixed with Teal acrylic paint. After the paint dried I added the patterned paper (which is from DCWV Cherry Blossoms stack) with Mod Podge. Distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and even scrapped the MDF wood from some edges to create a worn out vintage look.
Printed out some free vintage photos to put in the tiny frames (the bigger one is from Prima) and added some cute trinkets and charms.
The drawer knobs are traditional Indian Kundan buttons.
The chest of drawers measure 6.5x3.5x9"
Thanks for visiting!
