I will show you what made me feel so good, for it where some of the last few things I finished on Friday.
First of all there is another box and for those of you who didn't read some of my older posts: I'm in love with old boxes but these days I'm running out of them. I don't know what's the matter with my "before" pictures lately but I keep loosing them...sorry for that!
Before, the box was in a dark brown. That's it. :)
And here is my redo of it.
I painted it white matt while the brush was almost dry. This made the original dark brown shine through which, in my opinion, gives it a neat finish. Afterwards I aged the paint using sandpaper on the edges.
On the inside I did a small upholstery with a striped fabric on which I sewed on an image I found on Karen's blog The Graphics Fairy. It is an old sign of a french corset label and I love the style of the letters!
On the outside I "Mode Podged" some the rest of the graphic onto the wood.
There was a lot of leftovers of the fabric the corset label image was printed on and I don't like to trash leftovers. So something I've seen somewhere on another blog (I can't remember which one, otherwise I sure would give credits to the girl!!) popped into my mind but I did not want to just copy it. I've seen small fabric squares with stamps on them and I thought it would be kind of neat to have them as tags.
So I ripped the fabric leftovers apart, stamped them and eyed them. This is a fast and easy way to make unique and cute little tags on your own. And this is how they look like:
So these are some of the last things I did on Friday and I hope being able to show you all of the other things I did. I might won't be able to explain all of the processes the items have been through because I'm afraid it will get boring but I will pick out some of the interesting ones.
Much love and... gotta love Mondays!!! :)
