I picked up a bag of wooden Mahjong blocks in a local charity shop and most of them were very worse for wear, some of them had even been redrawn in biro, so I decided they had to be given a new shabby chic makeover Grin

Some paint, papers and ink later and I had these sweet messages...











And since I couldn't stop playing with them...lots of hearts too!

They make such wonderful little canvases!
How large are they?

I love that you've left some of the original surface showing through
