Thanks to The Graphics Fairy for the great image to transfer.

I used Mod Podge to stick the image onto the painted surface, let it dry, then wet and rubbed off the paper.

When it was dry I waxed the surface with clear wax.

I tied a key and key hole to the lid with jute.

Love the results and I gave it to my friend as a gift!

Today I successfully saved another cheese dish from the landfill!
