more mapping...

I love this hutch dearly, it was made by my late father-in-law with love for his wife.

I wanted to brighten it up a bit without any painting...

...and since I loved the last 'map project', I decided to go with that idea...


I think I could get carried away with this--we may soon have maps everywhere!

  5. That really works, with out using a paint brush. another option is fabric dipped in liquid startch, it goes on like wall paper, but peels off easily when you tire of it or want a change with no damage..
