This is what I worked on yesterday...this first picture is an older one that I didn't post but I found it to show you the round box that I primmed up. As you can see it's an Easter one that I got at GW for a $1.39! I had good intentions to do it with fabric but when I saw what Kindra did with hers I had to try it.
Here it is...I had the stencil for years and found it at a yardsale for .10 and I always kept it thinking that one day...well that day came:) I found an awesome Folkart paint color called Butter Pecan and primed it first, then painted it. It was my first time really to stencil and I loved how it turned out especially after I applied the walnut stain. So to Backwoods Prim... make sure you prime them first to cover up all the cuteness:)
Close up of it distressed ...I just used what I had ...times here are tuff, any extra money is used to pay bills and mortgage...just can't wait to get the job at Dollar Tree. Oh, I also used a cranberry on the stencil instead of barnred and the green is called a Leaf Green.
This is what I'm still working on, my wood spoons that just have one coat on and I mixed my paint and came up with this shade of blue! I painted this .25 basket from GW and will stain the inside too with walnut stain.
I went with the lighter candle holder, thanks for helping me make up my mind everyone:) I probably will use the darker one for winter...don't want to think of that yet.LOL Donna helped me with suggesting to put a piece of fabric underneath to soften it...love how it turned out so thanks Donna!
