Fail: Transforming a Writing Desk

Posted under Fail

Pin Reaper: Lori

Original Inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/80572280806668774/, via http://www.cre8tivecompass.com/mag/2012/10/10/ghosts-of-furniture-past-writing-desk-with-annie-sloan-chalk-paint/


What I Did: They make it look so easy! This was the worst of four attempts, i’m thinking too much glue? Anyone?

My Result: 


Next Time I Will: Less glue, let it dry a little longer, foam brush instead of paint brush for the glue, sea sponge for the paint.

    I’m really confused, the directions in the inspiration post never even mention glue. This should be labeled as user error, because I have no idea what this poster was doing!

      Colleen – I’m actually not sure what the Pin Reaper means by glue. Now that I read both posts more closely, I agree, it’s unclear what they were doing.

        Yeah, I was going to say that they make special paint that crackles like this and suggest that instead of whatever the glue method was…but that’s exactly what the pin says to do. :/
