Bathroom Redo

I recently completed a decoration redo of our main bathroom, and I must say, although it took me awhile to complete, I am quite happy with the results.  The decor is definitely inspired by the natural elements, specifically a beautiful piece of wood from my father-in-law.

The photograph project was pretty easy, it just took some time to allow for drying between layers.

1.  I first spread a very thin layer of Modge Podge on the back side of a black and white photograph.  I carefully smoothed out the picture, mounting it in the center of the piece of wood.

2.  Then using a sponge applicator, I applied two very thin layers of Modge Podge to the top of photograph (also covering the entire piece of wood).  I allowed 30 minutes of drying time between coats.

3.  I then took a very fine grit sand paper and roughed up the edges of the photograph.

4.  Next I repeated Steps 2 and 3 four more times.

5.  I finished off the project by applying 5 thin coats of Modge Podge to the entire piece of wood.  (Allowing 30 minutes of drying time in between each coat.)
