This is my first blog ever for Country Chic Paint! I found the highchair out thrifting and the bed is one I made (a replica of one that my Dad had made for us four girls when we were small). I just love the look of something repainted over time, drips and all! These two pieces were perfect for that. First I painted each piece in Creme brulee and let dry. I then used the Country Chic Paint beeswax bar in random areas. Then applying a second coat in Vintage Cupcake (let dry), using the CCP wax bar once again. Finally adding the last coat of paint in Simplicity and once dry I gave the pieces a light sanding to allow the layers of paint to peek through. After that I took some specialty papers and vintage transfers that I had laser printed and applied them with Country Chic Paint’s image transfer medium. Once dry I wet and rubbed off/sanded the excess paper until I got the worn vintage look I was going for.

I am a Momma of 4, ranging from 8 months old to 22 years and a grandma to a beautiful granddaughter who is also 8 months. I am #2 in the line up of 4 girls who are my best friends! Raised by a Mom and Dad who encouraged creativity and let us paint our own rooms and furniture as we pleased. I believe having a hobby is a necessity for happiness…well, that and having a hubby that encourages my addiction to thrift! I love to teach and see ones glow after learning/accomplishing something new.
