be gilding the lily. Well, after many hearts on the Etsy listing, but no buyers, I revisited the notion of painting them. I decided the white frames
weren't enhancing the prints,
so I said what the hell.....
I'm so glad I did!Voila!
to avoid that, and yes,
it worked like a charm!
And Oh, aren’t they purty!
this way all along. My next post I’ll be showing you the birdcage I just finished painting,
again with chalk paint. Tata for now….. Maria

set of alphabet stencils in a great font,
and I really wanted to find something
to use them on.
I’ve also been hankering to paint
a sign with chalk paint.
So at the intersection of chalk paint, letter stencils, and old wood, and throw in my gardening mood, here is the result……
to mimic to look of darkened wood from moisture. I then stenciled “Herbs” and “Seeds” alternated on all 4 sides. Then after lightly distressing with sandpaper, I sealed the paint treatment with clear and dark wax. I left the bottom wood bare (above and below) just to preserve the rustic look. I really love how it turned out, so naturally
I couldn’t stop taking beauty shots of ways to use it.
A million projects waitin’….. Linking To:
