Got a bit...

...side-tracked.

I have the body of my "Verona" storage cabinet all glued together and ready for painting...
 ...but I had run out of paint because I got distracted by this...
...an MDF unit from Creative Expressions that will hold my glues and glitters.
It went together in no time at all and I thought I would 'crackle' it...
...the crackle medium that I used isn't one I had used before (Artiste) and I don't think I put a thick enough coat on. I know I let everything dry properly, so that wasn't the problem...
...but there wasn't a lot of cracking going on. What did happen was that I used the last of my paint so had to ask Joanne at Pinnacle Crafts if she would kindly order in some more so that I can finish off the Verona cabinet (she did and I picked it up Saturday).

I think I might give this unit a bit of a spritz with some of my Distress Spray Stains.

In the meantime, I'd better get the body of the 'Verona' painted so that I can attach the PP panels and get it finished.

I really must stop getting distracted like this...I wonder if the Distress Ink Pad storage takes long to put together...no; I must stick to these and get them finished...but those other cabinets are oh, so tempting.........................................................................

You look like you are having great fun - putting together storage - which isn't something normally says to other crafters but these do look fun to do!

wow toni! this is great! you surprise me! it's always fun organizing the craft room. i do it sometimes just because i'm not in the mood to make cards - LOL.

love yesterday's owl. you ladies across the pond have some gorgeous dies. we have nothing as nice in the U.S. and if we did, it would be very costly!

have a great week. we're still in the deep freeze here.

hugs :)
