Just Because It's Small Doesn't Mean It's Easier To Paint: Episode IV
This week while treasure-hunting, I found an expandable peg rack. Though these tend to be dime-a-dozen, I happily brought this one home, because………
Look at those curves. Not to mention the fact that this one’s much beefier than most. The tallest pieces are 18” long, and they’re all almost 1-1/2” wide! They remind me of turned chair legs.
It was the shapeliness and size that prompted me to think “chalk paint!” And look at her now……..
Although I’ve seen these racks painted, I never see them chalk-painted in 4 colors. Yep, I couldn’t resist.
Red, Marigold, Apple Green, and Aqua.
And employed my new favorite haphazard way to apply the paint, just like the spice cupboard.
I must admit that when I first looked at this piece, I was thinking how quick it would be to paint. Well, there may be less surface, but sooo many crevices and curves. But in the end, after lots of distressing and waxing, I adore this one.
I don’t know if I can ever go back to just one or two colors. I might get bored…..
