Possibly the best thing about ASCP is what it has given me the courage to try. Case in point:
Surely we have all seen these plaques on our thrift store jaunts. Usually there are multiples and often times they have those dreadful heart cut-outs (sorry heart fans). I tend to go through these aisles quite quickly. But last week I was high on ASCP and decided to take a chance.
So glad I did.
I could not believe how easy it was to transform the wood into something current. Of course I don't actually have anywhere to hang them (because most of the open wall space in our house is occupied by thrift store/yard sale art).
A base coat of Old White and then Provencal for the numbers (quickly cut a stencil on my Cricut which has been
gathering dust serving as a giant paper weight for the past 7 months or so).
A coat of clear wax and then the dreaded buffing (for which I actually refrained from using my in house, likely to complain about having to do anything helpful child labor, only because I have yet to teach them how to buff appropriately)!
The 7 got a coat of dark wax as well and once again, I dislike it enormously on top of the light colors but that is probably just me.
Easy peasy with a big impact for relatively little effort. EXACTLY my kind of project!
What did you junque up this weekend?
