This was such a fun project to work on, and allowed me to share my other passion with you all, yes I am a petrolhead.
The MDF box comes in pieces and is assembled very easily as shown
I covered the base & outsides with embossed aluminium foil before painting each section with Lumiere Metallic Acrylic, this is a gorgeous, luxurious paint to use. I love the finish I've achieved.
Now for the real fun part. I have so many photos taken at the Beach Hop - a Rock'n'roll & Hot Rod week held annually at Whangamata, which we've attended nearly every year since buying our Dodge. It was a shame to cover the awesome background, so I've kept the colours true as best I could, and showing off the embossing where I could.
I've used lots of gorgeous Imagine if . . chippies here. The words & small cogs were heat embossed, chicken wire & banners were painted, lamp post was covered with embossed aluminium foil, while the quote was inked. These flowers & leaves are also now available. A few trinkets just finish the whole thing off nicely.
This has been a real fun project to tackle, I now wonder where this will live . . . in the man cave perhaps ? ? ?
