Finally got this itty bitty chest made over.
I spray painted it with black because I wanted to see how well the chickens would cover. Not too well!
So I had to pull the handles off with pliers, then applies some vintage book pages inside the moulding on the drawers and the top. Then glued the knobs back on.
It’s really just ‘wee thing’; but little things with drawers always sell well.
I also covered a stool top with old book pages. I just use my matte varnish to adhere the paper to the surface of furniture when I do this. Then give it a couple more coats for durability.
An 8″ x 10″ oak frame painted a yellowish-ivory color, distressed and stained with my good ole RL tobacco stain.
And while I was playing with old book pages, I decided to cover the inside of this tray!
Pretty good color match eh? (those wrinkles in the paper will ‘go away’ after it cures a little longer)
On to the next project!
