Altered Trinket Drawer Stand

Hello to all you out there visiting today! Shanna here with some altered art to share with you. I love these altered art pieces in the store and home decor items you can get and make them into what ever you want. 

So after I assembled it I gave it a coat or two of gesso. Then I picked a gray color to paint the whole thing. Then I went back over with some gesso and sprayed it letting it drip to give it a worn "milk paint" look. 

Now I like the seeing the slots where the box connects at. If you don't like this the best way to fix it is add some bits of tape to add texture on the stand. 

Then I decided after I added my clay pieces I wanted it to really look old. 

So I went in with some Paynes Gray mixed with an acrylic glaze. I brushed the paint on and then after minute or two used a baby wipe to clean it up until I was happy with the look. You can always build up color. 

I also smudged some of the Paynes Gray around corners and nooks on the stand. I just love this stand and had fun creating this look.

Thank you so much for for stopping by today remember to come back and check out Pam's post in a little bit!
