DIY world map vs. IKEA Trones

Materials: 3 sets of ikea trones, wallpaper adhesive, sponge brush, mural printed from, clear coat, electrical tape

Description: I used the technique behind Mod Podging something to adhere a mural onto 9 compartments of the IKEA Trones. I used a sponge brush and wall paper adhesive to paste the images onto the fronts and then again over the top of the images. Once it was dried I used a clear coat to seal the images. I then waited for the mural to dry and then evened out the sides of the compartments with electrical tape.

    What a great idea! Looks very artistic…I wonder if it would work with a large family picture as that would make a great wall feature. Only issue may be the image quality after blowing it up that big.
