Curb Find - small painted Apple Motif Container


Who would have guessed there would be a bit of curb side picking today? Dark green with white fronts, apple painting. Nothing much wrong that a bit of dry brushing with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Versailles, wouldn't enhance.

Project - no additonial cost, used materials on hand (paint, sand paper, wax, soft cloth).

I haven't touched a paint brush for about a month and I could not resist a little bit of fun and playing around. I love water based paint, the clean up is so easy and fast.
