Mod Podge and Thrift Finds

My errands took me to a part of town
I don't normally frequent.
And since I was already there
why not stop at the thrift stores.

A poodle cookie jar was a great find!

Love her expression...haha

I don't normally come across Diego Rivera
prints but when I do they come home with me.
This will be added to my collection.

I had a heck of time carrying this cement (?)
wall pocket...

It will be painted with white
and gray gesso...

Another heavy cement piece...
Gesso for sure!!!

From this...

To This...

I used ASCP Old White along with
white and dark wax.

Then I Mod Podged a
vintage FL map and FL postcards
on the top.

I went ahead and ordered a piece
of glass to protect the top.
It should be at The Emporium by
tomorrow afternoon!
