My latest project was a makeover for a sad little box that I got at the thrift store so long ago and sat in the basement forever. I think I paid less than $5 for it and it is a good thing because the supplies cost a little more than I would have liked.
But, boy, do I love the results!
Here are some of my inspiration pictures.
Here is the before. Sad little duckies…..
I applied plain brown kraft paper to the inside of the chip board pieces using a watered down wood glue.
I reused some of the hardware, which I repainted with a faux rusty effect using black and copper spray paint.
Added black upholstery tacks found at the hardware store to the faux leather strips and Voila! Ugly duck to French swan!
