A little altered project on the go.

I found this item whilst rummaging thru the carboot sale cupboard again at clochan. I believe its a spoon rack but i could be wrong. It have yucky red velvit backing but when i saw it i immediatly knew what it was gonna be.

So whilst the boys where off school on Monday for a local holiday, i got Alex to do the preping for me to keep him quiet.

He sanded all the frame then painted it with black and green dabber paints. He did a great job on it.

Later i painted it with Blonde Moments crackle glaze then over painted with white acrylic paint. I sanded the edges to reveal the green and black in places.

Today i backed the red velvet bit with my most special prized much stroked 7 gypsies paper and prima paper. I have had both pieces for over a year just for that special moment. I just need to age a little with walnut ink and then its ready to go.

Can you guess what it will be. How about a small RAK for the closest guess, lol.

Edited to add: Here are the finished herb and spice rack pictures.

I'm not sure what it is going to be but I am sure that it will be lovely!

If I had to say something then I'd hazard a guess at an ATC display holder.
