Beautify your furniture with this fascinating French look

 

I transformed this Thrift Store wall calender into a rustic French Message Board by using Iron Orchid Designs Mould & air dry clay. Painted it in Heirloom Traditions Paint, Black Bean, Irish Creme & Repose. Clear wax & Ancient aging dust was also used.
