I bought this jacket 2 yrs ago and have only worn it once.
I hate the brown fake wood buttons.
(I'm hoping I haven't insulted anyone that might have the very same jacket!)
so what do do?
alter the buttons of course!

I used old book text first;
applied a thin layer of gesso;
then decoupage medium and a flower patterned paper napkin;
then cut out words edged with gesso;
then more more gesso along the edge of the buttons;
then more decoupage medium.
Only problem is I don't think they're washable.
I suppose I could have dipped the buttons in a polyurethane as a final coat.
In the meantime I will try not to spill anything on this Bright White jacket (ha!)
If you have the same jacket as me - are you going to fix those buttons too?
