Here's the before. I'll be working on the box underneath it next.
I don't have photos of the part where I decoupaged a piece of script paper on top, thought it was too dark, white washed over the entire thing, sanded the top, completely took off the script, thought about redoing it, but decided I liked it. So, I just finish it off with a little embellishment.
I added an ornate metal fragment I painted, and distressed. Then, one of my vintage numbered tacks.
I used gesso for the wash. I just brushed it on, and wiped it back.
A softer look.
See ya soon.
