I am excited to share with you a brand new Martha Stewart product called Martha Stewart Decoupage. It is a fabulous new multi-surface product that comes in two different finishes, and of course Martha brilliantly also makes paper products, paint brushes, and wood stains to go with it. Sweet! Decoupage is both durable and dishwasher safe, and I am excited to show you a fun project I made with these.
I have been working on organizing my craft room better, but I realized that not every tool can be hidden away in a drawer. I need to have my go-to items close to me, like pens, scissors, and adhesive. I decided to make a craft organizer and started with a box that I made out of some scrap wood.
The first thing I did was use the Martha Stewart Wood Stain in white, and give the box a good coat of stain. Next, I took two of the Martha Stewart paper doilies and covered one side in a thick coat of decoupage.
I added decoupage to my box, gently rubbed on the doilies, and then added another thin coat to the top.
After the box was dry, I stenciled “create” on my box, and then painted it by hand with the Martha Stewart Multi-Surface satin craft paint. Both the Decoupage and Multi-Surface paint work fabulously, as they are intended for multi-surfaces like fabric, paper, and lace. I didn’t have any problems with the craft paint adhering to the white wood stain on my box.
I let my box dry for about two hours, and then it was ready to fill! I just used mason jars inside to help sort my tools.
I love how it turned out, and I especially like that it gives some creativity to what otherwise could be a huge mess; or was a huge mess I should say!
