Description

The old board was once upon a time a note board but the cover over the paper pad had broken off, there was something missing from the bottom and the wooden pencil holder and tulips were truly glued on! First thing was to strip all the bits off, I have kept them all as I expect they will appear someplace else! Lots of filling and sanding followed!
Now for the fun part.. I used another Craig & Rose chalky emulsion - "French Turquoise" - possibly my new favourite colour!! I gave it two coats all over then using wire wool distressed the edges of the front.
I applied three coats of Colron's beeswax in "Georgian Medium Oak" to the front and sides paying particular attention to the distressed edges. I used the "Natural" beeswax to the back.
In-between coats of paint and wax I also set upon the brackets. Using a wire brush I removed the loose rust and then gave them a good wash in hot water and disinfectant. Once I had dried them I applied two coats of a clear lacquer to both sides. I had the bolts for these but I opted to go for upholstery nails in an antique finish. As I did not want the brackets to sit flat on the board (I needed to slide the photo in there!) I glued some old cardboard washers to the backside of the holes.
I printed a copy of the original photo reduced to approx A6 size. Trimmed and mounted on lovely textured linen card. I originally had some jute twine for hanging but I didn't like the way it hung on the wall so I put a sawtooth hanger to the back. Not wanting to waste the twine (not really!) I inked a Kraft tag around the edges and stamped Papa on. Now it looked finished! Ready to be personalised for you.

nicely made and lovely material. sadly not quite big enough for the purpose I wanted it for, but as a tissue holder, which is what it is sold for, it is great.
