Hello everybobs!! today i want to share with you my bargain find of the week!! On passing my local charity shop on the way home from work i spotted through the window a rather sad and lonely looking wooden rack.... then looking at it again with my crafty eye i spotted a bit of potential there as somehing to put my distress ink pads on and other bits n pieces..... so £1 lighter in my purse I trotted off home with it.
I thought the shelves looked a bit 'bare' and although the wood looks quite good in the picture it was really quite rough. So I asked my buddies over on Docrafts wether I should have a go at decorating them or not and they were split 50/50 some said leave it some said go for it... so out came the crackle and the paint lol...
well 3 hours of fun later (with a break to cook and eat ) here is the finished result!!
First of all i stuck some heavy duty card underneath the holes to block them off and built up some dividing walls from the same card.
Next i painted the whole thing with some matt metalic antique gold paint. when dry i painted the top with Tim Holtz disress crackle paint (picket fence) and left to dry and crackle. then i added a touch of lace to the shelves and a flower here and there and TADAAAAA my NEW ink pads and distress paint rack!!
not bad for £1 huh xxx
