It’s my favorite time of the year! Time to get out and explore. I fell in love with this souvenir map chair. You can use a map of your home state or some special place you’ve been.
• Wood chair
• Mod Podge®
• Rubber stamp & ink pad (optional)
• Sanding block
Open and smooth out map. If map is too large, cut it down to size.
Spread a smooth, even layer of Mod Podge® onto chair seat with sponge.
Position map over chair seat and gently smooth it down to remove any wrinkles.
Use the sanding block at the edge of the seat to “cut” the map using downward swipes all the way around. This will smooth the edges at the same time.
If adding a stamp to mark your hometown, do this now (optional).
Apply a smooth, thin layer of Mod Podge® on top of map to complete. If additional coats are needed, let dry between coats.
Repeat steps for the chair back.
