We were challenged to take a plain wood crate and make it Christmas festive.
Box and Snowflakes
Large wood snow flakes at Hobby Lobby were perfect for an accent. I spray painted them the same ivory bisque as the box interior and then sprinkled silver glitter on it to give it some pinache and then hung it on a nail on the box.
It took a bit because it was 10 degrees outside and since I paint out on my front lawn, it was interesting to say the least. I painted a bit, brought it in to dry and took it out for more paint an hour later. After a dozen ins and outs, I finally got it painted.
Anyone free to come clean out my garage so I can paint inside? Just a thought…
Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue was the perfect choice for an accent color.
I painted it on the outside slats and side solid wood with a foam brush. I’ve been itching to use this paint. I’ve had it a few months. My big project for Annie Sloan will be an antique china cabinet, but that’s down the road.
Love, love, L.O.V.E. glittery snowflakes!
