Decoupage Ikea Drawer with my kids

Question of the day: What can I do with this Fira Drawer from Ikea?  I really want to put some color on it. I don't want to use paint...

Answer: I asked my daughter to cut out of magazines all the things she liked. Then we used glue, water and a brush... and voila! We made a beautifull collage on a simple drawer. She uses this to put all her paint supply. 

This tecchnique is called decoupage and is really simple. I haven't tried it with the special glue they sell for this. I used regular classroom glue and a little water. The bad thing is that the magazine paper gets really wet and you have to be very careful that it dries before putting the next coat. Next time I will use the Mod Podge Satin All-In-One Decoupage Sealer / Glue / Finish (8 fl. oz. ) . They say it's excellent!
