This photo is the first step after sanding the base - I painted it an off white color.
Sorry - I can't get this photo to flip. This is after I applied a wood crackling layer - we wanted them to have an antiqued look. I also painted over that layer with a different color paint and then finished it with varnish.
Here is the finished project - which I painted varnish over it again after applying the Cricut vinyl. Hope you like it!
