Natural wood grain effect

Hello dear crafters.
A warm welcome to you all!!
Using most PLAID products i have created this beauty, which is going to sit on my craft table forever. Loved how it turned out to be so, will have this for myself. I will share the idea of making this with you all.

Today i have upcycled a very old wood organizer.(say about 60yrs old)

Firstly i had to sand all the sides and corners of this organizer. Then applied nautical chalk paint on the outside on all the sides.
Then, on the inside i have applied Folkart Multisurface Light flesh colour on all the sides.
On the top edges i have painted sheep skin white chalk paint and this gives a lovely combination.
What say friends?? Have a look.

On the inside i have used a paper dollie to create the design.

On the outside two sides, using Craftreat stencil i have created patterns.

On the above, below and base i have used the Wood Grainer Tool to create wood grain pattern.

On the surface of blue, i have applied a coat of flowy white paint and immediately using the woodgrainer tool got this pattern. you can use any two blending colours to get this pattern.

This beautiful woodgrainer tool has a strong hand grip which allows us to hold it intact while doind the graining pattern. It is one of the best tools i have worked with. 

Handmade flowers are made using all the special papers and cardstock.
Emblished this organizer with mini 3D emblishments.  

Some more random pics,

An organizer to recycle took this new look and a place in my craft studio with craft supplies from PLAID. How do you friends like this?

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy crafting and creating,
Ashwini Vinayraj
