Steps on how to transfer photos on wood

Take sand paper of your choice keeping in mind lower numbered sand paper is rougher and will distress the paper more and higher numbers have a finer grit. Use the sand paper to go around the edges of the picture and wood to give it a vintage look and blend it in to the wood until you are satisfied, in my opinion you can’t really mess this part up.
