      I love this tech kit and want to thank Lynne and Tiffany for inspiring me.  I did a lot on this chest.

      First thing I did was paint the entire chest (not the little drawers) a dark brown acrylic paint.  Then I covered it in crackle medium.  After that dried, I painted over the top of the crackle medium in a white/cream paint.

      After all of the paint dried, I used a stencil and my trusty molding paste and went around the chest.  When the paste hardened I used the Rose Distress stain that came in the kit and using a paper towel I added the stain to my stenciled flowers.  I also used some Peeled Paint Distress Stain.

      I went around the chest with my Prima Rasp Tool and roughed up some of the edges and coers.  I also roughed up the shelves near the edge under the boxes.  This way it looked wo from the boxes being pulled out and pushed in.  I went over all of these roughed up spots with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age them a bit more.

       

      I also used Lumiere Paint on my keyhole and hinges.  I used some green and then ran them through my cuttlebug and dry embossed them.  Then I used a combintation of Copper and Bronze Lumiere Paint to give them a bit of a patina.

      I used some Walnut Distress Stain on the inside of the little boxes.  I did cut strips of paper and, like Tiffany, I covered all 4 sides of the boxes.  Then I used my rasp to distress the edges and the finger slot and then used a combination of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age them.

      Threw some flowers on top and called it a day. 🙂

                Gorgeous, Lisa! Love what you did with the crackle paint!

                #156345

                Absolutely beautiful! And putting the paper around all 4 edges of the boxes doesn't cause I problem with them opening and closing smoothly?

                    Wow Lisa, this is absolutely AMAZING! I love everything about it, but I especially love the crackle effect and the flower cluster at the top. Thank you for sharing – I'll have to give your crackle technique a try (love the look of the brown paint first and then the white). You put so much time into this project and it shows – it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

                      To answer your question, no, the paper doesn't affect the opening and closing. 🙂
