Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Need something to look rusty and crusty? Well, that is my favorite color and texture. I have a concoction for small items but some larger items really need a paint technique. Let's face it, wood doesn't rust. This is a great technique for a picture frame, candle holder or for me today...a monogram! Here is a picture tutorial for you:
The second paint color is Autumn Brown. It is a textured paint. I will describe it as brown with flecks of sand in it. Creates a sandpaper feel on the item being painted. Mine dried a nice faux color that looks pretty darn close to the real rust on my nail barrel shown above. I added a little flower to the "M." This monogram is the topper for my shabby window which I have decorated for my MIL's bday party this weekend. Can't wait to share this cool picture display, but that's another post! xoxo
