DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program: Up-cycled Vintage Magazine Holder

Hi all  
i am sharing my first make for the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program. I have an altered magazine holder which i coated in Americana Chalky Finish paint.

I started by sanding off the old varnish and coating with Americana Decor  Innocent Chalky Finish paint.

I Then painted a layer of Weathered Wood crackle medium and let it dry before painting over with Americana Chalky Finish Everlasting Paint. 

I painted another coat of Weathered Wood Medium over the top and painted another layer of Americana Chalky Finish Innocent paint. As the paint layers cracked it toned down the pink a little and left this lovely distressed effect.

The Weathered Wood Medium creates large defined cracks.

I lined the bottom of the magazine holder with  Victorian Romance Decou-Page Paper

Thank you for visiting and for more inspiration  visit the DecoArt blog
