Continuing on my furniture makeover journey, today I worked on the china hutch. I started with a base coat of white chalk paint and went over it with a pretty shade of coastal blue. Finally, I distressed the whole thing.
It still needs to be filled up with more goodies, but for now I have some coral and a hand-painted lobster plate!
I also made a shabby chic wooden sign with seashells on it to go with the coastal theme of the hutch!
I came home from Hobby Lobby today with three pieces of mini furniture in desperate need of a makeover. I decided to tackle the mahogany pie safe first!
I used FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint in Imperial, a really pretty red, along with the Antiquing Wax. The end result is a really vintage, shabby and rustic finish that I’m in love with! Much better than the mahogany, don’t you think?
For the inside, I used Mod Podge to decoupage a grungy star printed scrapbook paper. Now, I’m just left deciding whether to keep the tin door inserts or to replace them with clear acrylic so you can see the items I’ll eventually place inside. Thoughts? I’ll be keeping with the Americana theme so I can have this piece ready in time for the 4th of July!
This past weekend, I celebrated a milestone birthday – my 30th! So what better time to share this adorable little birthday cake I made? It doesn’t get much cuter or more cheerful than a colorful birthday cake!
This little guy has already found a new home, but if you’d like me to make you your very own birthday cake, just give me a holler! I can customize it to any colors you’d like.
I’ve decided to participate in the #100dayproject, so I’ll be posting a new mini creation to Instagram every day! I’ve chosen to create miniature fruits and vegetables from polymer clay. I hope you’ll enjoy following along – and if you’re participating in the challenge as well, be sure to follow me on IG @petiteprovisionsco and I’ll follow back!
