I thought about it long enough. Last night while everyone was sleeping in this household, I found a new paint brush and a can of paint ( not even sure the color as it was left over from another project) and went to work. The antique cupboard in the studio is now transformed from it's former yellow color to an antique looking whitewash!
I used an old rag to apply and wiped and put hard manual labor into this folks!
So I'm happy.
But am eyeing a couple of other things out there that may get the old whitewash treatment.
Living on a farm when I was young, I fondly remember them coming in to whitewash the barn every Spring...
If I remember correctly, nothing left in the barn escaped the whitewash treatment as it was sprayed on everything.... including the cement walk way.
It was cool walking into the barn seeing it right after it was freshly coated.
All the dirt, spider webs, cow s#%t, and muck from winter was gone with a quick coating of that stuff!
Wonder what was in that whitewash paint?.... Mercy!!
So I suppose I'm just carrying on a tradition here.. LOL!
Now for the announcement... you may recall the past couple of years I've been a vendor at our local and annual Quilt Event.
Well I will be back at it this year!
Hopefully with a ton of hand-dyed wool and some new goodies!
So here is the ad that appeared in the Country Register...
