Little trunk style jewelry chest I recently found.
Nice clean ‘innards’? Check. Paper peeling off? I was probably going to remove it before I painted it anyhow. Sold!
It was actually a nice finish under the paper. It was a bit harder to get all that paper off than I’d hoped. I peeled off whatever would easily come off first; which wasn’t much! Then I soaked a dishcloth in hot water and laid that over the remaining paper. After letting that sit for a bit, I used a paint scraper to get ‘most’ of it off. finally had to use some ‘Goof Off’ to get the last little bits of paper off. Then a little sanding before repainting.
Aqua paint (of course!) and a bit of sanding to distress.
A section of a pretty paper napkin decoupaged on the top for a little added ‘oomph’.
Done and already SOLD, at Stars.
