This is a makeover I did a while back and have been meaning to share with you. I took a small thrift store cabinet that was structurally sound, but not very pretty. I painted it in cream acrylic paint and then used beeswax to adhere my original vintage images. These are from a 1920's French fashion magazine. When you use beeswax with paper this old it just seems to all melt together; the paper acquires a translucent quality that I really like (for more on working with beeswax see my tutorial here). I cut off the backs of upholstery tacks and glued those to the front.
Here is the before.
Paper—vintage images from my collection
Miscellaneous—acrylic paint, beeswax
