Have you seen this?
This picture has been everywhere lately and it is just sooo gorgeous!! I looked high and low for vintage wallpaper, with no luck. When I did find it, it was a ton of money or it was UGG-LY! That's when I thought... What about scrapbook paper? Lucky for me, I have a great scrapbook store close to home. Are you ready to try this yourself?
Here's what you'll need:
* Any piece of furniture you want to use.
* Scrapbook paper of your choice.
* Scissors or a paper cutter.
* Sponge brush.
* Collage Pauge
* Hand sander with 120 sand paper
Find the piece of furniture that you are going to use. I chose a coffee table that needed a bit of love.
After you have your piece of furniture how you want it, start to lay out your paper. Then, cut it to fit the area your wanting to put the "vintage wallpaper."
Now that you have the paper where you want it - start collage paugeing the BACK of the paper and place it where it belongs on your furniture. After all your paper is in place, collage pauge the top. If there is bubbles, wet your fingers and work them out from the middle of each paper. If you are using the Aleene's Collage Pauge, you should not have very many bubbles. It's just that good ;0)
At this point, I waited a day to do the next best part! SAND IT like you mean it! Really, go to town! The more you sand it the older it will look.
Here is what it looked like after. I wanted mine to have that classy old look.
Now your done! Sit back and enjoy your one of a kind beautie, I certainly did :0)
Here's another picture of the front. Aren't you in love with that tiny drawer?
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! If you try it, I would love to see your masterpiece!
