I've just taken delivery of these sweet little items, perfect for learning how to paint with chalk paint:- heart shaped tray, small tea tray and a cute garden trug. If you'd like to learn how to paint with chalk paint, particularly using one of these items, please drop us a line.
Just finished this beautiful Victorian Window,custom upcycled project for a lovely lady who has a French theme kitchen. We have a number of Victorian and Edwardian windows - we can teach you how to do this or create one just for you. This was done using two different stencils from Maison de Stencil, firstly using black acrylic paint for a base and then hand painting on the gold, using Autentico New Gold metallic paint. Gold paint on it's own is not enough of a contrast. I've just purchased some glass etching products and will be experimenting in the weeks to come. Check back for more exciting vintage windows.
