So awhile ago I came across this blog post I fell in love! I had already bought several damask (pattern) items for my new home and knew this would be a PERFECT add. So I went to Goodwill and found one my first trip, yea when does that ever happen?? But here it is :)
Before I got to work ...
Measured the length and width of the wood pieces and marked on the back of
scrapbook paper (I used a scrapbook cutter but you could use scissors to cut it out).
The inside and outside were gross so I gave it an extra good sanding.
Then painted the outside black and applied scrapbook paper with Modge Podge.
(I painted a layer of Modge Podge under the scrapbook paper and over as well, this was the
most tedious part of the whole thing).
I found the knob for the bread box at Michael's for $1, and the bread box was $3 :)
(the glass door knob on top was from a fun trip to canton $7,
and the Cow is my mom's milk dish for coffee)
And its in USE! :)
Can't wait to put it in my FIRST HOME.
