Since my kitchen is pretty traditional my goal is to incorporate a few more modern,
casual pieces and after looking at the poster photos over and over and reading your comments
I decided unframed would give me the look.
I wanted to mount it on canvas, I read several tutorials and decided on using double stick
tape around the edges of the canvas. Nope tape didn't adhere to the canvas!
No problem, I'll try one of the several mod podge tutorials.
* Apply mod podge to canvas
* Place poster on top making sure any wrinkles were smoothed out
* Weight it down with books overnight
I was so excited Sunday morning, when I removed the books the back side of the canvas
looked smoooooth! Turned it over - NOT so much!
I decided to peel it off the canvas and mount it on wood as suggested in another tutorial (using a couple scrap pieces of poster as a test)
1) Mounted one piece with double sided tape
2) Mounted other piece with hot glue gun
3) One other tutorial suggested applying water on the entire poster to remove wrinkles,
you can see I tried that, too!
4) After mounting brush with mod podge
Here you have it!
This one on the top is looking promising, yay!
No way, it's bubbling!!
I'm done, for now!
(As soon as the posters are 50% off I'm getting another one!)
I'm like a fish out of water without a project, so...here's what's next
I got one coat on today. I'm using the Rustoleum High Gloss Enamel that
I loved on my coffee table redo here.
I'm planning on some pretty gold accents.
If you have any tips for the poster I'd love your advice!
