|(The wallpaper has been cut up in this picture)|
Once I had the plaque home, I had to get the old picture off. It was just a cardboard print by hallmark. So, I got it nice and wet and went to work on it with a paint scraper. I think it took me about a half hour to get it all off. Then I gave it a good sanding and painted it black. I chose the cologne ad because it was the perfect size and glued it right down. The black paint got some distressing, because, of course, I was going for the vintage look.
Here it is all done up. I have a couple more plaques and loads of the wallpaper, so this one may end up in the Etsy shop.
How about you? Would you like to make your own vintage advertising sign? I have decided to give to one lucky reader a complete set of all the ads. They would also make great wall art.
