I saw this technique on a blog I stumbled across the other day and was so impressed by the way it turned out for her that I knew I had to try it somewhere. She did it on her staircase going to her basement. (must not have been a southern gal) For a while now, I've been wanting to do something to the back of my island. Paint is usually my first thought but I decided to try the brown paper bag technique. It was easy peasy! And cheap, too!! I already had the roll of brown paper...I used it to cover the kids' v-day boxes, so all I needed was Elmer's glue, water and clear protectant.
Before: not a very good picture, sorry!
After: still a little wet from the protective coat
