Do you remember the little smoking stand I got a few weeks ago at the Flea Market?
Well, I redid it this week. I started out by taking off the door and cleaning the whole piece thoroughly.
I then gave it two coats of Plaster Paint's Toasted Marshmellow. After the two coats of Plaster Paint, I used the Paste Wax from Plaster Paint. Then I buffed it.
Now, don't panic anyone. I used pages out of this book - "The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson" - which had already had a bunch of pages torn out of it when I bought it.
I then used Mod Podge and torn pages to cover the door and also the little shelf inside.
After that had dried, I added a print of an old seed catalogue complete with bird and applied more Mod Podge.
I then trimmed the edges of the door and shelf and lightly sanded the edges.
At this point the door was too bright for the cabinet and so I antiqued it down around the edges with a tea dyed ink.
I intentionally left the inside of the cabinet and the door the wood finish it started with. I then reattached the door and put back the original door handle. ( Note: The inside wood is not nearly this red - it is a walnut colored stain????)
I sanded this piece down some but not a whole lot. I just sanded where there would be wear and tear - like on the corners and some on the legs.
I am very happy with how this turned out!
Hope you like it also!
