The shabby chic Cottage
Let´s get right to it: I started with this wood-scraps that I took from my dad. This are really thin and I could just break them up.
Then it´s just to start gluing... I wanted a long- thin house and then I put two pieces at the bottom and one on the back- so I can glue flowers in it later.
When the house is put together I painted it in white gesso. Then on the house I painted with crackle medium and the roof is pearl-paint mixed with distress inks. After 4 hours I could paint the rest of the house (the crackle medium needs to rest for about 4h) with a light dove-blue color.
But I couldn´t leave the roof for long so I put on pearled-micas and white glitter. Than over the door I put a metal corner.
And just like that: The house is finished! I took an old paint brush that had an accident with glitter-glue... and now it´s a flagpole with a blinged-out flag.
