Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with something I am very proud of. I found a second hand sideboard on ebay for a very good price and wanted to make it fit into my new room. I still had paint from painting my other furniture and I used some of my favourite papers I won in my placing of cardmaker of the year a few years ago from Stampin' Up cut using mosaic punch.
We sanded the top of the unit down to allow the paint to adhere to the top. When there was enough for the paint to grab we used treatment to stop the knots on the unit that had previously shown through the old paint coming through again. (You can just about see the knots showing through in the first photo before we worked on it!) We also fitted the handles and filled the holes where the old knobs had sat. That way we knew where they would go after painting and wouldn't mess up the fresh paint. We took them back off then painted the unit.
After a couple of coats of gloss on the white and the blue/grey mix we let it dry thoroughly and fitted the handles when we were done.
Lastly I got going on my moroccan style pattern. I had cut hundreds of punched pieces of patterned scrapbook paper and I sat and used mod podge hard coat to carefully affix them on the door in a mostly random pattern. After this was done I varnished with a few coats of spray varnish.
I would love to know what you think!
