Decoupage with Scrapbook Paper (round 2)
Here is how this one began…
Not bad at all for $4! And actually would fit into my decor nicely as-is but hey, I’m here to show you how you can change things up.
So I changed it up!
I began by painting it white with Satin finish spray paint.
Then I used some wall spackle to try to smooth out that rope-y front.
It worked well enough.
After it was dry, I lightly sanded it to smooth it more.
Then I pulled this scrapbook paper from my stash and cut it to fit.
I used my mat and cutter again. (this one)
Now, for the slanted sides…here’s how I did it.
Do you see the photo above? I simply pressed against the wood edge to create where the cut would go.
Can you see the crease above? ( I had to darken the picture so it would show up)
I simply cut along that line and …
Now … for the other side, I ended up having to cut a couple of pieces to make the pattern correct.
But no worries! Once I use the Decoupage Gel underneath, you cannot tell at all.
Then I decided to take this decoupage scrapbook paper project one step further…
I did it on the inside too!
Love that little peek of more.
I didn’t apply the Decoupage Gel to the top this time. I just left the paper as-is.
I love the blue and white contrast. (and you’d never know I pieced that together on the front!)
Just something about blue and white together that always draws me in.
Love how this one turned out. :)
Different look, huh?
PIN it to save it!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Keep an eye out on Instagram this weekend…we’ll be working at the Outer Banks house! (didn’t end up making it last weekend…oops!)
Plus, I have something fun coming on Sunday…keep an eye out for an email from me!
And be on the lookout for another one from the haul, here…
