Reversible Wood Photo Backdrop!

Simple reversible backdrop!
Pin It

Cheap blocks from a stacking game...
Using elmers glue I stuck 3 boards together...making 16 squares
Then alternated them and stuck them together...little gaps in the centers.
Like so.  Let dry completely!
This is the hardest part for me!
I stained DARK WALNUT on both sides...
Then used a cotton swab to dab a little petroleum jelly
(totally generic right?)
onto random spots on one side of the board.
Then I used my favorite color of aqua!
and did sort of a distressed dry-brush kind of job...
since I'll be distressing it anyway
Gently rub off parts where the jelly was with a soft cloth...
and presto!
2 sided awesomeness!




Linking up to THESE parties this week!

Cool idea! I definitely need something like that. My dirt-filled backyard is not a great backdrop!
