Trash to Treasure

On a recent thrift store excursion, we picked up a wooden "C" for Miss CW for the whopping price of .50! The only problem with was blue with white clouds...not exactly matching C's room! What to do, what to do? Of course, get out the 'ole can of spray paint! I forgot to take a before picture but here is one of the back while it was getting painted!  
So we let it dry overnight. CW had picked out some scrapbook paper she liked and traced the outline onto the back of the paper.
 We were out of Modge Podge so we used Martha Stewart decoupage glue and craft sealer to cover the letter first, then applied the scrapbook paper "c" to the form, and covered it with another layer of decoupage glue and sealer.
We let it sit for a couple of hours to dry, then Miss C proudly hung it on the outside of her door! Good work from my "crafter/blogger" in training!!!
