Botanical Art Makeover
I've been busy remodeling my small mudroom home office on a budget. I knew that when I saw this set of botanical prints that I could make them into something new. My original plan was to print a new graphic on each and decoupage. The more I started looking at them, the more I really like the look and the text. They were just so dingy, dirty and yellowed. Just cleaning didn't do the trick. I figured that I could experiment a bit and if that didn't look right, I'd go with my original plan. style ating
Little effort equals a big change in my French Farmhouse home office makeover which is still a work in progress.
Here is the before. They were very yellowed and dirty looking. The entire set was $3!
The bottom print has white wash the one above and the others have not been painted yet. Visit my blog for the complete how to!
After they were white washed, I painted the outer edges with liquid gold.
I love the new look! They are subtly vintage. My office is gradually becoming a space that I love. The new wall color has made a big difference going from green to a light neutral really brightens the space.
