hello guys! some time ago i had the idea that white country style furniture and shabby chic decoration would fit perfectly into my new, colourful home - thus i took the decision to coat those many many old vintage frames i have found in the cellar earlier and the old wooden cross from my great grandmother with beautiful cream white paint i have bought in the diy market, among the wall paint and brushes.
i have finished both the frames and the cross on the second attempt, because first i have coated the surface and afterwards the bottom. well i have never thought that this could be so much work (totalled up i have worked for nearly 4 hours), but i guess that it was worth it, if i look upon the final outcome.
i have recorded the origination process in pictures you can see below. i have finished the frames after work. it was already quite dark outside so please forgive me the bad image quality.
... but aren't these frames and the cross looking lovely and absolutely shabby chic? it's a bit of work, but it's worth it and if you want to decorate your own home with some new items, simply watch for some old decoration items you already have stored in your cellar or attic - you simply need varnish and some time ♥
