A little shelf and a cigar box that were painted with the Arles ASCP. The pictures in the post are a little backwards. I thought I would put some back to school items with them so you could get a better idea of what they could be used for.
Closer up of the cigar box. Not sure what else I will do with this but it's not finished.
Here is the shelf plain. My friend Sue at Sullivan and Murphy had a ASCP workshop at her home. Another friend Kathy at Creative Home Expressions attended. The instructor was Jean a stocklist for the ASCP paint. We had a wonderful lunch in Sue's gorgeous back yard. Sue posted about the workshop a few weeks back. She does a much better job explaining than I do, if you want to know more. You can mix the dark with the clear wax, the method I used on both of these. The old drawer really took the stain well. It gives the piece you are painting an aged look. Makes quite a difference from just the plain paint.
Closer of the shelf. This shelf had some little holes in it.......love how it looks with the wax. I am hoping to hang it on a wall as a little shelf.
When I first got the shelf, I used it at the Springfield Vintage Market Ohio Bloggers get together. We were supposed to bring a snack in something vintage. We had our little get together in Sue Whitney's (Junk Market) Space. There weren't many of us but it sure was fun. I won the prize for most creative. I think that was the category. I won this great book by Sue and tickets to the Springfield Vintage and Antique Market which is happening next week-end. Also next week-end is the Country Living Fair in Columbus. Also the Backwoods Fest in Thornville. Wish they were not all on the same week-end. I can't handle all that junkin in one week-end.
Here is the same little drawer that is pictures above with a banner that says TREATS and has some yummy vintage candy.
So if you are on the fence about the price of the ASCP........it is so well worth it. No prepping or priming, easy clean-up, unique colors, and the paint goes so far.
Hoping you have a great week-end. No weddings this week-end for us but Dimples and Eyelashes turns 1 and he is having a party.
