Decorating Wood Furniture

Does anyone know how to make furniture similar to the piece pictured? I would like to make one as a gift for a friend's birthday. Thank you.

You need to measure it all over, the width, sides & the drawers & how tall it is, then get the kind of wood you want to build it with, good luck.

Do you mean make the whole chest/piece of furniture, or do you wish to decorate it in this fashion?

The style is French and it involves crackle glaze, pictures cut from magazines and stencilling, used with a pastel paint it can be very effective. Hope this helps.

This looks like something my 25 yr old daughter would want in her apartment. I think you could achieve the look with some wallpaper. Taking off all the knobs, I would start with a light sanding. Using wallpaper paste will stay longer than prepasted.You can also purchase a spray glue if you want instead of the paste. If not, I think there are some mural stores on Etsy. You'll have to show us the results! (Check out this on I saw on the net too!)
