But sometimes, I like to get a small project done. It doesn’t take forever, and it allows me to practice new techniques.
These wall hanging were that classic “fake Tahiti” look. AKA, super dark and kinda blah.
I love lightening up painfully dark wood. It is like I am paying debts for all the dark wood in my early 2000’s home style decisions. Heck, all the way to 2010…or longer…
So I had two matching wall hangings, and started off by giving them a quick once over with Country Chic All In One Decor Paint in “Simplicity.”
Kinda “meh.” Not exciting in the least. So I dry brushed some of Country Chic “Driftwood” on top of one, and then a thicker coat of that same colour on the other. It was getting better, but needed depth, so out came Country Chic Paint Wax in White. YAAAAS! This was what I wanted!
The lighter one is my personal favourite. (Painters aren’t parents, we are allowed favourite children.)
Have you painted anything small and simple lately? Let me know in the comments!
