It's All Black and White~~~and easy~~~~~

Take a forlorn little chest, some black paint, a few pages from an old discarded reference sized dictionary and good old Mod Podge with matte finish. Voila! With a little bit of time you have a new piece of artwork that says just what you want it to.

My methods: Take knobs off chest and paint black as well as the facing part behind drawers. Select pages and use Mod Podge like glue to adhere. I used pages with words and quotes about those words. If you look closely at the 2nd drawer, you can see my word "Possibilities". After the entire piece is covered, allow to dry overnight and give it all a finish coat.
