Thrifty Before & After

by - September 22, 2013

Remember that wood thingy I picked up on Friday at our local church thrift store?  Here's what it looked like before:

And here is the after:
Excuse the lighting.  I took my photos around dusk.  I thought I was going for a neat, artistic lighting effect, but what I got were some dark photos.  Doh!
Still, you get the idea.  I used this great French graphic from The Graphics Fairy and the Mod Podge technique.  I have to admit, I'm not as polished at it (Mod Podge technique) as my sister is, but I still like the look - even if I still have to get off some little paper nubs.
And I'm still not sure what to call it?  Wood crate?  Wood couch (c'mon, doesn't it look like a miniature couch to you?!)?  Wood display?  Whatever it is, I'm going to use it to display something pretty in the house.
