Wall Art using Mod Podge

I have read a lot about the wonders of mod podge, so when I was at Hobby Lobby I bought the gloss one .
And today my dear friends I will show you my first project using mod podge.
Bought these two wood wall art from Goodwill for a quarter each and they...
\
Removing the original art on the wood was pretty easy, I just washed it and the paper art was easy to lift off the wood.
Painted the wood with metallic gold and they look like these after...
(i have a little  about metallic gold lately)
I did not really care so much about the flat surface because it's going to be covered up with the new art.
Printed off a memorable time of our life on a piece of white paper.
And adhered it to a craft paper using mod podge then after that I adhered the entire thing to the flat surface of the wood using mod podge.  So impressed by how strong of an adhesive mod podge is.
Would definitely use it again on my future projects :)

What about you? Have you ever used mod podge or what is your favorite adhesive?

P.S. I used a paint brush to apply the mod podge.
update: do you want to see where this wall art was hung? click it here and here to see.

  4. So funny that you mentioned this because I keep seeing it referenced in posts too, and have been wondering about it. I haven't used it yet but have little doubt that I will at some point.

    I like your pictures. :)
