Crackle Paint

Kristi and Crystal of the blog Teaching Little Miracles usually write about teaching first graders, but they also put together some tutorials for home improvement and craft projects.

For this project, the duo gave a makeover to a white bathroom vanity using a painting method that has a crackle effect. To do this, paint your furniture with a base coat color that you want to show through the “cracks” (Kristi and Crystal used brown). Follow it with a layer of Elmer’s glue, which is then followed by another layer of paint in a different color (blue). As the paint dries, the glue will leave your furniture with a unique, aged look.
