New Items......

Here are two great black distressed roll top bread boxes that I just finished. For being older bread boxes they are in great shape. They have been painted black, edges sanded and then antiqued with brown. I also finished the two small heart boxes on top of the bread boxes, these would be great for a special little gift for Mom.
This is a vintage magazine holder that I painted white and then distressed. I have tied a beautiful piece of ribbon on the handle that has a gold edge, I added a vintage skelton key and an old earring for a great cottage look.

I painted these two great birdhouse for your front pourch, they are both in a rusty tin square can. The birdhouses are also rusty tin with a grape design painted on them. I have added a twisty vine and a REAL birdnest with wooded eggs. My son climbed up some of our trees to get the both birdnest for me, what a great son!
I am working on some great metal plates with a Thomas Kinkaide type cottage that I am painting on them, I will post pictures of these in a few days. They would of been done already but we went up to my daughter-in-laws family cabin in Island Park over the weekend, had a great time!


  1. Hi, welcome to blogging. You'll love it! Your bread box looks great. How you you do the antiquing?

    come see me

  2. Thank you! To antique I use Jo Sonja clear glaze and then I mix acrylic paint with it, I choose any color that I want, in this case it is in the brown family. I brush it all on, wipe it off, rub lightly with steel wool, then use wax on it.
