Oh, I used the Matte version of Mod Podge for this particular project..no real reason, just the one i grabbed.
I ended up needing more than that, so i just dribbled on some more as I went along.
Dark Walnut stain. Put a good layer (one dip in the little teeny can I have was all it took)
No worries, I got this.
And there she is, in all her beautiful glory.
the frame is one that I yard sale-d...25 cents if I remember right. BOO YEAH.
