vintage wallpaper for fira boxes

another fira mini chest hack to add to the collection. i really like this one from patty. the vintage wallpaper definitely takes it up a notch.

“i have 5 units that will be bolted into one tall stack. i had thought about papering them all alike but i have decided to finish each one with a different vintage wallpaper.



i should have known this before i started but these wood boxes need a light sealing before papering…duh. i learned on the first one that a light coat of paint or a varnish will make the paper adhere and be smoother.”
