A long while back I bought two wooden crates
for about two dollars a piece at an estate sale.
I always knew I would paint them but wasn't sure how...
I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Old White
and very lightly painted a thin coat all over the entire crate.
I wanted the paint to look worn, without having to get out the sandpaper.
After the paint dried (two whole minutes later), I traced
the address of the Portobello Market onto the crate with
my handy dandy carbon paper.
I then traced over the image left behind after tracing
with the carbon paper with a Sharpie.
Yep. That easy. Awesome right?
It turned out great!
Thanks for stopping by!!
