I am excited to say that I have completed another project off my list! I am happy with it. I know my eldest son doesn't like it very much. He says he doesn't like that it looks antique,but oh well. You get what you get and you don't throw a fit,right. I am sorry my pictures are not the best,it was kind of hard to take pictures of because it is so long. Anyway here it is.
We have all this wood in our shed that was left from the previous owners of our house,so this was pretty cheap. We also have a bunch of little cans of stain that I have been experimenting with.
How did I do this?
I first sanded and primed the wood.
I then painted with white with a little brown and some yellow,but mostly white.
The sides are painted black.
I then used a very large ruler to draw the lines and then I painted them.
After painting the lines I sanded it all down. (Here is what it looked like before I added the chestnut stain)
After it wall all stained, I decoupaged my paper on.
To make the paper look antique I used distress ink around the edges.
Here are some of the supplies I used.
For the finishing steps I added my vinyl numbers and then coated the whole thing with decoupage.
