Introduction: Map Bookcase
Supplies paint for item, map, mod podge, foam brushes, bowl for mixing mod podge in lots of paper towels
Step 1: Choose Your Project to Map
I choose a microwave cart that was ugly. I then sanded it and painted it light blue on the areas that were not going to have maps on it. Let it dry completely for 24 hours.
Step 2: Mod Podge the Map
This is my first attempt with mod podge. I watered it down so as not to rip the map, I first coated the top of the microwave cart then "glued the map to the top". I let it dry completely before going to the next step.
Step 3: Mod Podge the Top
After I glued the map in place and it was completely dry which took 24 hours, I mixed the mod podge 3-1 ratio. I then added a thin coat on top of the map.
Step 4: Add a Map to the Back Wall of the Shelf
I glued the map to the back wall in 2 pieces as there is the shelf dividing it. I laid the cart down to make it easier to attach it. Let it dry 24 hours
Step 5: Adding a Round Globe Picture to the Shelf
The shelf seemed plain so I found a round earth picture with my map and glued that (with the mod podge) to the center. Let dry 24 hours.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Now all maps have been secured I went back and applied the mod podge to each one, allowing 24 hours to dry. I settled on 2 good coats on the shelf and back wall and 3 coats on the top to add durability!
