craft fail?



i have been looking for a way to organize my daughter's hair stuff.  specifically, her headbands.  i tried making a holder out of an oatmeal container, but it wasn't what i wanted.  so i found this mug tree at a yard sale, and thought aha!  i sprayed it with some yellow krylon - and i didn't prime.  which i regretted almost immediately. 


after three quick sprays, it's still not covered.  and the finish is crackly.


i will probably sand this down, prime it, and repaint it.  but for now, it's working well to hold everything!  you could also use this for jewelry - the top two could hold necklaces, the bottom two bracelets, and rings and such around the bottom.

It's still cute. Just slap some polyurethane on it and say you're going for that distressed look... Glad to know I'm not alone in the craft fail department, though!

i agree with kelli. it's very shabby chic.
