I stained the whole thing a dark, dark cherry almost black (not using actual stain but water mixed with acrylic paints), then drew outlines using black pencil, the pattern is an old wallpaper fragment I found, then painted in the white bits, then laquered the whole thing with a shiny water-based sealer. This is not a DIY so much as just painting a box. But there was a lot of sanding involved.Pin It
