Sometimes just when you give up on something, a spark ignites.
This piece of decoration has been around the house for probably 5 years, but I never really liked it, so I put it in a box of donations a while back.
Before I had a chance to donate it, I saw something very similar in a pretty post by Butterfly and Bungalow...

So I had a change of heart and out of the donation box it came!
I decided to try the new white paint and dark brown wax by Vintage Paints that I bought at Birds & Words in McKinney recently.
Sorry to say I was disappointed with the white paint by Vintage Paints, at least on the metal.
I would say it had a kind of slick plastic look to it! I quickly painted it with another paint I had on hand, One-Step Paint by Amy Howard.
Painted With One-Step Paint By Amy Howard
I've always had a great outcome on metal with One-Step Paint, and from now on I plan to make it my go-to paint for metal.
Painted But Not Waxed Yet
I used the dark brown wax by Vintage Paints, and I was happy with the way it turned out. It was easy to apply and removed easily when I wanted to take some of the dark wax away.
Dark Wax Added
This just proved to me, once again, that everything looks better with a little chalk paint and wax.
Thanks for dropping by!
