Dear craftsmen! Lovers of vintage and soulful things!
Today I offer you to create an unusual decor of a bedside table that is quite simply implemented.
I want to show you how easy it is to work with ceramic tiles, how to reallistically make a surface shabby using a one-step craquelure and a decoupage card.
First, sand the surface:
Sand the tiles, too, wipe them and degrease.
Then prime the blank with acrylic prime and varnish mixed 1:1. Then prime each tile separately.
And proceed to decorate! I selected a decoupage card to beautify the tiles.
Mark a card to cut it into squares of the same size as the tiles. Make the back side rough with painting tape and iron:
Then soak the squares in warm water for 2-3minutes:
Dry with a napkin and glue to the tiles this way, remove all bubbles:
Let the blank dry, perfect the edges:
To age the tiles, I mixed paint: Turquoise, Raw Umber, Titanium White and Naples Yellow. And applied somу paint around the edges. It's not a colour, it's just a thin shade of a colour, so use water to dilute the paint and make it thinner:
Decorate the edge with a template and textureв paste:
Varnish the edges:
Apply crackles with a sponge:
When the surface is dry, sand it:
And use a dry brush to apply a light paint over the textured paste:
I also added stripes:
Decorate the drawer, use the decoupage cards and paint:
Draw some flowers:
Age the drawer:
See the beauty you get :)
Some more decorations:
Wow! It's almost done! It's only left to varnish the work. Two layers are enough :)
Admire your own handmade bedside table! :)
