I started this morning painting these pantry boxes that I recieved for a Christmas gift in the early 90's and here lately I've been wanting to paint them a lighter color, I know I want to paint one a blue shade and one a cream not sure of the other. So what do I do after I paint them?, I don't have any stain left so that I could distress them with . I have a bottle of burnt umber and I seem to remember that it used to be used to distress things or am I dreaming that. lol Anyhow if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear...I've put 3 coats of ivory on the hunter green one and painted the barn red one a spicey brown which I think I'll put another color on top any suggestions on that? The navey one, will be blue I hope.lol I'll probably finish them tomorrow. I know I'd like to get some walnut paste wax, I wonder if Lowe's has it? Anyone know?
As I said I stopped at Goodwill and I did find this stem of greenery for .99 which still has the original price tag on it of $4.99, I'll put that in a crock soon:)
I did get excited when I saw this, I guess it's a candle holder, it can be hung on the wall or sit on a shelf or table. I see it done in black...of course or I might experiment with something different:)
Sorry, this is a short post but I'm getting a little tired and I take the girls to the bus stop and preschool tomorrow, at least I think Samantha will go she had to go to the doctor's Monday and here she had strep throat. Michele said that with the medicine she is like new again, thank goodness:)
Don't forget to stop at Leslie's blog to see others that have been working on their projects too!
