When my father-in-love brought this to me I thought…hmmmm, ok I can work with this. Solid wood. Dovetail drawers. I can turn this into something…….I think.
I’ve been wanting to put numbers on something for awhile now but each time the hubs says he’s not feelin’ it. So this time I didn’t ask.
Numbers I said. Numbers friends. I decided to dust the cobwebs off my Cricut and cut some custom numbers. I LURVE my Cricut and I forget about it sometimes. But when I remember it, it still amazes me. It’s so handy!
First I painted the piece with ASCP Aubusson Blue. Then I stuck the vinyl numbers on and painted a coat of Paris Grey on top of them.
Before the Paris Grey was completely dry, I CAREFULLY took the vinyl off with my razor blade.
Pure sweet numbered happiness right here folks.
I then waxed it with my Miss Mustard Seed Antique Wax. Love that product. If you haven’t tried it you should. It adds such depth to your paint. You can purchase it locally at Bittersweet Primitives in Franklin TN.
A little bit of distressing and it was read to go home!
I’m really please with how this turned out. How about you?
