Hey everyone! For all of you who live where it's HOT, I hope you survived the weekend and stayed cool.
I tell ya, it was HOT here in my neck of the woods. The thermometer said 100 on Saturday.
The heat kept us from doing a project that we wanted, but we still worked outside for a bit in the woods. The heat was bearable in the shade, but definitely not in the sun!
Since it was so hot, I stayed inside and painted a few things on my list! There still are a lot of things to lighten up around here so I started with two plaster plaques that were up in the kitchen.
Here's what they looked like before: (The walls aren't really orange, they are still a goldish color and will change soon)
I used Apple Barrel Sandstone craft paint for the first coat. It seemed a little flat for me.
So I dry brushed and wiped on and off some Burnt Umber by Americana. Then I rubbed some of the edges and raised parts to distress it a bit.
So much better!
Now if I could just get motivated to paint the whole kitchen! I think we've decided on a paint color and will show you that later.
