Now this isn't something I painted...but I did use Annie Sloan Dark Soft Wax on it to age it just a little bit more. See those sweet little fruit thingies...those are actually wall paper! Oh yeah...the dreaded wall paper cut outs and pasted on the front syndrome. Even with all the ugliness of the fruit wall paper stuck-ons, I could see the potential in this sweet lil' Hoosier. I love the cracked paint that's at least 4 layers deep. It soaked up all the dark wax and accentuated the character. As for those lovely fruit wall paper stuck-ons, I sanded them to give them an aged look to match the crackled paint and dark waxed them too. Looks so nice...I'm not a primitive kinda gal...but I think I would put this in my studio!
I hope to be posting more now that the shop is open and in full swing. If you are ever in DeKalb Illinois, I would love to meet you!
Until next time,

Friday was such a whirl wind...the paint arrived...and I had a fellow blogger there with camera in hand to photo-document it! I don't think she was quite ready for all the hustle and bustle that descended upon her...me sweating buckets, cases and cases, and cases of paint, wax and books...customers shopping, asking questions...oh you name it, it happened! It was so exciting!
So, as for how to purchase the paint from me...well you are always welcome to stop by the shop at 209 E. Lincoln Hwy. DeKalb Illinois. Or you can call the shop at 815.754.9700. And starting next week you can order it on line at www.CartersCottageInteriors.com.
Hope to see you soon!
