We have been at the cottage for a few days and this is my routine (kids are not here). Get up (roughly 10am) have tea, make breakfast, walk dogs, read book, experiment with a difficult recipe (doesn’t work out), have a nap, cruise Pinterest, have another nap, read some more, have hubby make me dinner, drink wine, talk, walk on beach, go to bed. Repeat. Well today I thought it might be nice to actually do something productive. There is lots of old furniture in the cottage that could use some paint so here is today’s project.
I took a very fine grit sandpaper to the edges and then used natural wax then some antique wax to age it. It took under 10 minutes to distress it.
I kept the brass handle, I didn’t paint it. And I found this old jug in the shed, thought it looked rather nice.
So today’s project proved to me that #CountryChicPaint needs very little to no prep. I think this will look gorgeous in the girls bunkie.
