Here I am again, finally found some time to do a new post. I've been a heavy worker for the last days, or was it weeks already?
I keep forgetting about time while I'm working in my little atelier which is getting stuffed and glittery.
Well here I'd like to share two things I've picked out for you amongst the others.
It seems that my new passion is called Coffee Mills. I found two gorgeous exemplars at Mösi's and I will have to go back for another visit soon...and this one I found at a flea and antique market I had a look at in late summer.
It kinda looked ugly and was nothing special but that encouraged me even more to spend time on it.
The paint is a self-mixed eggshell white, distressed and waxed and in my opinion the "Joy"-tag and the original and really old lace trim makes it all (do you know what I mean?)
And here is another gorgeous piece I've found at Mösi's and if he might clean up a little of his lovely and stuffed chaos, which I love so dearly, I might be able to get some of the kettles and buckets too.
Here is the original look
|Milk Can before|
I used a technique I've seen some time ago which is getting used more and more. I printed and cut two of my favorite images I've found on Karen's Blog (The Graphics Fairy) in black and white. For this technique the images have to be back-to-front especially if it's got typography on it.
I brushed Mod Podge onto the print side of the image and some onto the can itself and pressed it on the spot where I wanted it to be. Make sure you're pressing out all of the bubbles. It dried over night and this morning I rubbed off the paper, using a moistured cloth.
When the image was all dry I applied another layer of Mod Podge for a finish and tied also an original old lacetrim with an old cookie cutter and a tag to the back handle. Oh, forgot to mention that I painted the upper handle in eggshell white too ;)
