This weekend I found a little wood box in the back of my closet that was just itching for a makeover.
Here it is after a sloppy coat of primer
I then gave it a few coats of high gloss white spray paint to "try" to give it that lacquered look.
Since I had painted a design on the box and tray I just made, I decided to try a new technique. I got out a stack of Boston maps, mod podge, paint brushes and went to work.
I was going to cover the whole box with Boston maps, but I decided to go simple with this one and just use the MBTA map for the top.
An ode to my home away from home because I spend so much time on the T :)
Once the mod podge was dry and the little bumps were smoothed out, I gave it a heavy coat of my favorite Rustoleum Clear Lacquer spray paint to seal it all in.
Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, which is why the photos are not really styled, But it was a fun project to keep my busy and show my love to Boston.
On to the next one I go.
