I have been wanting to try this for a long time. However, it is was on a long list of things I want to try. I finally decided to give it a shot and I was so pleased with how it turned out. I am using it in a swap as the altered item and I really hope my partner will enjoy it.
I bought the unfinished wood at M's or J's. I can't remember which because it was that long ago. I painted it with glitter soaked chocloate acrylic paint, cut out the words and then added the flowers, buttons and ric rac. Once it was all finished and dry I sprayed it with two coats of clear acrylic sealer.
