As a quick share for today, I'm gonna show you some pics of an old wooden box.
When I got it, it was all plain and dirty and with years of leaves and crud inside.
It didn't matter to me though, I knew I could do something with it.
I took a water hose to it at first with a good scrubbing consisting of about 4 brillo pads.
And then after it all dried good, I got out my stencils.
Looking for a big one, I choose the one as you see saying, "Simplify."
And the large star.
I get all of my stencils off from eBay by just searching for "primitive stencils."
Anyways, after using some Delta stencil paint, (also found on eBay,)
I let it dry for about 24 hours.
If you've ever worked with the Delta stencil paints before, you know this is a must because they take a long time to dry because it is oil based. But the good thing is that they cover great and last long.
After that I just took some craft sealer, found in the craft paint section
and put on a coating of that in matte.
In this pic below you can still see it a bit wet looking before it had dried completely:
But don't worry, it dries completely clear:
And here it is all finished and ready to sell:
It is for sell in my craft Booth#555
