Decoupage - shelf

While learning decoupage I had made of on  aluminium plate and recently I had done it on my craft table . As I'm preparing my craft room and decorating with handmade items, thought of decoupaging on a shelf I have.
Here is the shelf, I got it made from a carpenter:
I wanted to give this Victorian look, chose very mild color. Back side first one coat painted with primer and then painted with pista green.
For the top and the sides selected the pista green color paper with rose prints. I just loved the paper!
After attaching and painting , it looks like this:
And now for the inner side of the shelf, I wanted to paste same pista green paper, which I had chosen  for the top and sides. But there was shortage of paper for the inner side. So used two different kinds of papers.
Here is how it looks after pasting the paper:

As a final touch of giving Victorian look , attached the thread lace which my friend had given, to the borders.
This is how it looks now.


I hope it has now at least little bit of Victorian look, what I'm murmuring :-). This I have kept in my craft room, with my craft items. I will share about other handmade items in my craft room in the coming posts.

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
