Quickie Project – the painted pumpkin
I finished a few projects last week for a client, and started a beautiful vanity. I’m one coat into it so far. The next step involves flipping it over, so I can get the feet and hard-to-reach under spots. Might have to wait for my muscle man to get home for some brawny help.
In the meantime, I found this little clay pumpkin at a consignment shop this afternoon for $3.00.
So, it came home with me, and about 30 minutes later it looked like this…
First, I painted an undercoat of ASCP in Coco, then did a coat of Old White. I painted this in my warm house and I swear each coat dried in about 2 minutes! Then I clear waxed the whole thing, distressed a whole bunch, and slathered that puppy in dark wax. After I wiped it away, I rubbed it back even further with a bit of clear wax, until it was just the right shade of dirty white.
This fast & easy project was a nice change from the time-consuming ones that furniture can be. Yay for quickies! 😉
