Jelly Cabinet Craft

You guys are right, this is NOT a Jelly Cabinet. :-) Survey says that this is a drying cabinet, hence the dowels. You can see that I never majored in vintage furniture identification (is this even vintage??.....I haven't the foggiest!!). I'm so glad I have some people to set me straight!! Thanks for the tips!!

All I can say is WOOOO HOOOO!!!! I am so thrilled with the funkiness of this Jelly Cabinet redo. I found this piece last night at, you guessed it, Goodwill. For $9.99. What a deal!! Here's what it looked like when I found it:
Am I right in assuming this was a Jelly Cabinet? Let me know what you think. All these dowels threw me for a loop, but the general shape seems to suggest Jelly Cabinet. 
Here's the deal. I primed it:
Then I customed mixed a light greenish blue color for the undercoat. Once that was painted on and fully dry I slathered it with sloppy glue (thanks to some inspiration from Ann at Make the Best of Things ) waited for the glue to set a little bit and then painted over it with a darker greeish/blue. This makes for a great crackle!!

I used plain acrylic craft paint for this project. I have tried to do the crackle effect with interior paint and it is just too thick for it to work. I also painted a grape vine wreath with the undercoat color to make a little matching decor.

Whew!! I can't believe how fast that project was put together. I am so thrilled with it. I love the new splash of green in my rose colored kitchen.
