ModPodge Week-end and Garage Sale Find

This lamp is my garage sale find.  It was soooo hot that I was only going to the post office but I saw a sign and diverted down an alley.  This is a heavy lamp made of metal with a glass shade.  I asked how much he wanted for it and he said make an offer.  I had $4.00 and he took it.  This is an expensive lamp and I love it.  It is going to sit on my desk but my desk is messy so I put it on this little table to take a photo.
Like Blue Birds?  I saw these at the $1.00 store and I liked them so well that I purchased 3!  I thought they would look lovely hanging on my friends wall.
But
then
I
used
Mod Podge
and
this is how they look!!
I purchased this scrap book paper in one of the big books (80 papers) on clearance at Joann's for $7.97.  I also purchased 2  other ones for that price but one of them has 180 papers!
My friend Mod Podge!!  I am using almost a bottle of this a week!!
I can't get the photo of the before picture of this chair to load.  I used Mod Podge on this and guess what I used as paper??????????
This is paper napkins that I have had for 15 years in a package!  You have to peel the backing from the napkins and this one had 3 layers.  Put the glue on the item and then lay the napkin on.  I don't think you could ever get it smooth and I didn't try as I liked this look.
Here is the chair with the seat just laying on top and I thought that I might use this fabric to cover the seat but it is too BLAH!  I'll have to keep looking through my fabric until I find the right one.  Any ideas?
I'll post a photo when I figure it out!!
