Country Guitar Makeover

Country Guitar Makeover

Well this was a different kind of project than my usual furniture redo's.  I picked up this beginner guitar with intentions of making a lamp out of it by drilling designs though it or adding stained glass to it.  I discovered that it was still in playable condition so I couldn't talk myself into cutting it up and kept leaving it for another day.    

Eventually I realized I would never bring myself to cut it up, so thought it would be fun to try adding a transfer to it.  So I took off the strings and cleaned up the surface and taped everything up to give it a makeover instead. 

Then I used a Prima rub on transfer I had hanging around and positioned the deer and trees to make up a little scene. Rubbed off the transfers when I had them in the right spots and it worked perfectly!  

To seal it I used Gator Hide with a sponge and applied 3 coats as it will hopefully get used again and I wanted to make the design durable.

So after it dried it was restrung and ready to go.  It was nice to personalize it and make it a one of a kind.  Can't wait to try another...maybe with colored epoxy next time.   

Hope you enjoyed!
