  2. Paint the side slats of the crate with Cotton Ball using a 1/2" flat brush. Paint the rest of the crate with a thin coat of Bittersweet, allowing the wood grain to show through. If too much paint is applied, use a paper towel to wipe back the paint.

  3. Measure and cut the triangle paper from Americana Gold Stag Decou-Page Paper. Apply a coat of Americana Matte Decou-Page to the crate, position the paper, and apply Decou-Page on top. Remove any wrinkles with a finger.
