So glad that you have come to visit! I think that I have the greatest followers in blogville! So welcome!
I want to share with you some of my Junk n finds and how I use them in my home as well as how I update them to match my decor.
Here are a few of my finds, my main purpose shopping this time was to find white stoneware, and white dishes.
I found this cut little pitcher but I was not big on the fruit painted on the front. But I knew that it would not be hard to change.
WA LA ! Perfect!
I could not believe my luck! I went into three different shops and came out with different pieces of white ironstone. I paid less than $20 for all three pieces! Perfect!
This is a beautiful statue of Jesus with children in his arms. I know what some of you are thinking, “why are you going to redo this piece?” Well I want to have an older patina on it and add just a little different look. I use this process on most of my painting re-do’s.
I painted the statue all over with a watered down brown paint.
Then after it dries I paint a thin coat of crackle on it. Next a coat of flat white paint. Then I use small grit sand paper to wear down some of the edges. Sometimes I will use a different color undercoat for different effects.
I really love the patina on this Madonna and child. She is perfect for my collection.
This lovely old pitcher use to be bright red, I am just not a red sort of gal. So I Sprayed it pink, well since I have been leaning towards French Nordic design I thought it was about time to change it.
Here is the new look. The texture on it could have not turned out more lovely. I will need to keep these items away from water until I spray them with a water proof finish.
Oh, remember my last post when I gave you a peek of a find that was hanging out of the trunk of my car?
Well, here is another little peek, come back on Monday to see the big reveal!
Have a great weekend!
