Indescribable, I have to show you a "before" picture. It was such an ugly dirty little thing.
Here it is with a coat of Heirloom White (Rustoleum).
I like to use a heavy duty face mask, for safety, and this spray paint grip (Rustoleum) for comfort and control.
I love the patina - you can't get that with newer wood.
I picked out some pretty scrapbook papers, the stripes were chosen so that they would have maximum impact even though I was only going to use small strips.
I carefully cut my scrapbook paper to cover the floor of the cage, the door, and parts of the frame.
I used Mod Podge and a small paintbrush to decoupage it on.
It needed more contrast, so I painted some bits black and sanded in a few places...
