Melanie's Profile

About

My motto is: "If it will hold still long enough, I'll cover it with paper. Almost anything is fair game - boxes, trays, tiles, chunks of wood...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I take pride in creating a quality product - I cut, glue, varnish and sand until all edges are smooth and the item is well protected.
My items have a distressed look; for 2 reasons - I sand down the paper and varnish to make all the edges smooth; and I like the look of a distressed surface.
