Created by Cathe Holden

Lifestyle maven of the Inspired Barn in Petalum, California, Cathe was inspired by the wood grain drawers of the side table stand and instantly thought of old cigar boxes. She began by spraying the base of the unit leather brown and then applied decoupaged cigar box details with mod podge and the Furno heat gun.

Step 1

Tape off the drawers with painter’s tape.

Step 2

Fill the Home Décor sprayer with latex paint and spray exposed wood.

Step 3

Dip the cut cigar box printables in Mod Podge and apply them to the front of the drawers. Wipe over the decoupage with a damp sponge to remove any wrinkles.

Step 4

Use the Furno heat gun to dry the decoupage. With the heat gun on a low setting, wave it over the design until dry.
