Antique Magazine Rack Part 2

 I finished painting the old magazine rack I found and shared a few posts back. 
I found a wonderful image via The Graphics Fiary that went perfectly with the shape of this piece, printed it out in reverse and photocopied it. I then brushed heavy gel medium over the front and stuck it onto the wood.  Next I used a rubber roller to make sure all bubbles were removed and the image was flat.
 Once the glue was dry I wiped the paper with a wet sponge and rubbed the paper off with my fingers until the image was crips and no more paper was attached.
 I love how it turned out but I wasn't finished...
 For the last step I brushed brown wax then clear wax over the entire thing to age it. 
I love how it turned out. :)
