Please don't judge. This is my counter -- can you say YIKES. I am a little overwhelmed and thought I would focus on getting the extra chickens and decor up and back on my cabinet tops.
I bought this weird frame (the glass was already glued and ready) to make a sign. I love all the signs that let everyone know when you got married. So, this is my attempt. I started by painting it a dark blue.
These are my color choices. Dark blue, light blue, vintage white and a dark walnut stain.
I painted the entire frame dark blue and let it dry. I then wiped the light blue on letting some of the dark shine through. I repeated with the white only to cover most of the frame. After the paint dried, I hit it with a butter knife and sanded it in different places then wiped stain over the entire frame. I let is sit for a little bit and wiped it all off with a clean cloth.
I love the effect. I don't think the camera catches how cool it looks. Just think, a year ago I would have been so afraid to try this - he he.
I covered the contact paper with chalk and let it sit for a while.
What do you think? My husband was a little worried - it's not permanent - ha ha.
A little Valentine message.
These are a the other grouping I came up with. What do you think?
Thanks again for stopping by and my counter is almost cleared. More to come soon.
This is where I party: The Shabby Creek Cottage
