Once that dried, I used the fabulous Krypton paint from my master bath redo. to paint the innter portion of the cabinet.
I let that dry overnight so it could set well.
Here it is so far:
Then it went iffy from here.
I wanted more of a crackle effect on it but nothing I was trying to use worked.
I painted acrylic brown over the top and HATED how it looked with all the white covered up. It looked dingy and gross actually. :) Yucky combination.
So I just went a little crazy and decided to try and sand it down with my hand sander.
The white popped out and it sanded the texture down so that it had a smoother surface but still a wavy effect.
I liked that a lot better.
I ended up wiping a little glaze on it to tone down the white then I put a gloss varnish over it which made it just shine :)
It took me a few days, but I ended up loving the result.
Very, very different...
I used vinyl and my Cricut to cut the saying out then just stuck it on... I distressed it a little as well.
My husband likes that it almost has a driftwood effect.
Totally not what I expected...
...but I think I"m okay with that. :)
It's incredibly solid too...
I ended up hanging it in the master bath.
What do you think?
I think I'm in love.
Hope you're all having a great Monday!
(is there such a thing?)
