Butterfly Cottage is coming along like I planned. The interior is rustic like a tree house or club house with many old boards. They are actually craft sticks- jumbo and regular. I then aged them with a mix of black, brown and mostly water. It makes an aging wash that does not cover the wood grain.
One wall is covered with layers of "old" wallpaper.
After picking out pieces of wallpaper, I painted the entire wall with white glue. I put on my first piece and waited a few seconds for it to get wet from the glue. Then I moved it around until I had some wrinkles. I also scratched some places with my nail to make rips.
I kept repeating the same thing with each layer. I didn't stay true to the layers though. You could get technical and make sure the layers position corresponds to each other like they were layered on over time. I didn't bother.
Here it is all done. Then I glued the wall in place.
I'm also making a few pieces of furniture.
I made this bed to look a little like Italian Tole beds except mine is wood. Till next time! Thanks for coming over! hugs♥
