Prettied Up With Modge Podge

I love a good bargain.  
I found some wall hangings for my daughter's room on clearance in T.J.Maxx.  
I wasn't fond of their original state, but knew that I could fix them :)

They were a honey colored wood with cute cut-outs attached:

First, I painted the sides of them with a dark brown acrylic craft paint.

Then, I pried off the cut-outs.
This was probably the hardest was partly stapled and partly glued, and I didn't want to break it!
The best tool was a plain old butter knife;
Oh, the multi-uses of a butter knife! Worked perfect!

{and of course I don't have a picture of the blank wood}

 I picked out some cutesie scrapbook paper that would match my daughter's room and modge podged it on there! 
{side note: my husband HATES the word modge podge, so I try to say it around him as often as possible...haha}

I distressed the edges a bit with some ink/paint/chalk...I couldn't decide what method so I tried a few.

Then I glued the cut-outs back on

ahhh...So much better!
