Like many of us, this summer is starting out to be a busy one.With vacations, barbecues and events, it can be hard to find time to build in the shop.Not to mention the fact that it can be sweltering hot! This week I offer a solution: a quick and easy project designed to squeeze in between all your summertime activities.
This wall unit requires no special measurements, plans or tools.Just let your creativity loose.I made mine out of free pallet wood and used a new technique to create a vintage tattered wallpaper effect.
The idea is to look as though the boards were salvaged from an old Victorian home that had been painted and wallpapered many times over the years.I couldn't find any real wallpaper.(Okay, I didn't really look that hard.
But does anyone even use wallpaper anymore?) Instead I used some scrapbook paper I found at a craft store.I picked two patterns that reminded me wallpaper that might have been in an old parlor.First, I painted a coat of white chalk paint on the pallet boards, followed by a coat of blue acrylic paint.
I love using acrylics because they dry almost as fast as you can brush...
