Updating knotty pine
As I worked, I brushed Mod Podge on the surface to seal the paper .You may see wrinkling of the paper occur as you work. Make sure to adhere each page thoroughly and seal in one step, this way you will get less wrinkling of the paper.I also want to keep the furnishings neutral so that the table setting and food are center stage. I opted to wallpaper the interior of the hutch with pages from some old books which are FREE.After removing the pages from the book, I put matte Mod Podge on the back and attached to the wood.
Make sure to apply enough Mod Podge so that you don’t have any air pockets.
Sometimes, you just need to look outside the box for ideas. I didn’t like the dark hinges and pulls, but could not afford to buy new ones so I white washed over them. I like the off white of the book pages against the white plates, platter, and pitchers.
