I've had this mail organizer forEVER. Remember when moose were really in? Or was it just me trying to find decor to go with all the taxidermy my husband keeps bringing home?
It was time for a makeover.
I began by spray painting the whole thing black. This was the color I wanted to show up after distressing. The trick to this method is petroleum jelly. more commonly known as Vaseline. Using your finger, rub a very small amount of vaseline over all the places where you want to distress. I went over the edges. Then I hit a few spots in the middle.
Now spray paint your top color on top and let it dry completely. The paint will bubble up a little where you've added the vaseline. You can kind of see it where the arrow is pointing.
I decided that it needed a something more. So I decided to stencil. You may remember this stencil - I've used it on my game cabinet and my bench/chest.
Here it is back in use.
In the interest of keeping it real I'll give you a look from a distance. This is the junk spot. I try to keep up with it, but with the kids home all day long - there seem to be a lot of messes to clean up.
