Yes, you can decoupage almost anything.  How about a  rescued coffee table covered in magazine pictures of "all things coffee"?  With all of the amazing paper and fabric available, the possibilities are endless.  Watch for Decoupage it ..workshop dates coming soon!!


In Happenstance you will find handmade treasures. Painted, decoupaged, re-vamped, seasonal,fun, sometimes "funky" updated vintage pieces. I specialize in furniture renewal, but dabble in all things creative---Lots of "decor and more".
