DIY Desk Tidy

Hi everyone, 

I have been saving all sorts because I wanted to make this, but it had to be the right sizes, and to be honest there is only so many pringles a gal can eat !! 

I have used 3 different size pringle cases (empty of course) a chinese spice container which is metal, a big plastic container that held nuts and 3 different size plastic bead containers

I glued them all down on a round metal tray and then sprayed them with a prima, I then gave them a lick of crackle paint, then painted again with white chalk paint and then I painted the whole this over with PVA to give it a shine and to make sure all the chalk paint stayed in place. 

Added, lots of distress inks I applied with a brush, as I find sponges dont get into the corners to well, then I glued on lots of different trims, then some flowers and finllay I added my precious cherub :) 

What do you think ?  I love it and cant wait to start using it now 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
