Here is my latest creation:
An Old Trunk given to me that I re-papered with scrapbook paper,
vintage advertisements, and mod podge.
The before picture:
Some vintage looking scrapbook paper...
Some really cool vintage advertisements I printed off from
A super simple project.
I first peeled as much of the old paper as I could then vacuumed it out with a shop vac.
I used a damp rag to moisten the scrapbook paper before I slathered on the Mod Podge.
*Getting it damp helps the paper to mold to the surface*
I would also wipe the paper down with the damp rag after I applied it to the trunk.
The vintage advertisements were just printed on normal printing paper, so I actually Mod Podged the ads to a plain piece of paper first. This was done so that you couldn't see the pattern of the scrapbook paper peeking through the ads.
Once all the papers were in place I lightly painted over the whole thing with Mod Podge,
then waited for it to dry!!
I love quick and easy projects like this!
And because I already had all the supplies this project cost me ZERO dollars!
Choosing not to paint the trunk was a hard decision for me,
but I really wanted it to keep its original farmhouse look. So I thought going with a vintage
paper theme on the inside was a good way to keep her looking...vintage!
Now my big ol' trunk can finally serve it's purpose...
Hope you enjoyed!
