Painted Wall Shelf with Crackle Medium

This heart shaped wall shelf was another thrift store find. Originally, it was all wood, with a few scratches. Now it is refreshed and hanging in our room. 


  • An awesome thrift store find you want to re-vamp
  • Dark shade acrylic paint
  • Light shade acrylic paint
  • Crackle Medium
  • Paintbrush

Step 1: Paint your object with the dark shade acrylic paint, let dry completely

Step 2: Brush on your crackle medium, follow the instructions on the bottle. Mine said to let dry for about 10 minutes (until it felt tacky). Here is something like what I used:

Step 3: After your crackle has set, lightly brush over with the lighter acrylic color (a foam sponge brush worked great for this) Let dry!
