Decoupaging a Divider Screen

Every now and then, I do a project that turns out so good, I can hardly believe I did it.  One of my most recent projects was to decoupage a divider screen.  The divider turned out great and is now being used in my booth.

I bought the screen at a yard sale.  It was in various stages of a redo involving paint and wallpaper.

I decoupaged one side with old yellowed dictionary pages.  I used matte Mod Podge on this side. This side is facing my neighbor's booth.

The other side - the most fun side - was decoupaged magazine ads.  I used old magazines from the 40's and 50's.  

I found so many quirky ads.  Even tough I personally chose and cut out and attached each ad, I still find myself browsing the screen to revisit them.

There were tons of ads for retro colored appliances - loved those!

Unfortunately, right now not much of the screen is showing in my booth.  I have my booth pretty full. Oh well.  It'll show better later.  Meanwhile, it still makes me happy.
