Upcycled mandarin crate / Serviettentechnik Upcycled Mandarin Kiste.

Some time ago I have found a mandarin crate. Before I got inspired and decided what I would like to use it for, the case spent a couple of weeks on my balcony. ;P
Lately, when I was arranging the shelves with decoupage materials, the idea of creating an organizer for paints came to my mind.
The color is not exactly the one I imagined at the beginning, but that is the fun part in decoupage. The outcome can be sometimes really surprising. ;)

I haven’t used the crackle glaze since I moved from Cyprus to Germany. As the weather in those countries is completely different I thought it will be fun to work with crackle glaze. I must admit that I gave a try two times, as with the first result I was not satisfied. But now I can say that the size of the cracks is perfect. :)

Adding small ornaments became one of my favorite finishes.

The motif is from a napkin and the white writings were made using a silicon stamp.

Let me know your thoughts about upcycling. Do you also find a use in things that most people would throw away?
