I got a sample container of Maison Blanche Vanille to see if it was a color that I liked. I was inspired to paint this little wooden drawer. It belonged to a bookshelf Ashleigh took with her. She didn't want it so I figured it could hold things in my creative space. Actually, I have two of them.
|The drawer is full of images from the Graphics Fairy blog.|
This was my inspiration I wrote about here.
I painted this little dog, this A C Gilbert Erector railroad signal tower and the drawer all Vanille one evening while catching up on DVR'd shows.
Oh, and I had this little globe that was a bank. I put Antique Light Brown Wax on the globe and dog. You can see what the wax does here as the Erector tower wasn't waxed. I put wax on the drawer in the top photo too.
I tied a piece of leather cord at the base of the globe and put a collar on the dog with an embellishment from my friend Becky. I figure I can perhaps hang the Erector tower on the Christmas tree. (I got the idea for hanging the Erector tower on the tree here - the 16th photo down.)
I found the globe and Erector tower when I shopped at a flea market here.
I used up every single drop that was in the sample container and had to go out and get more because I love the color and it goes well with my kitchen cabinets. I recently painted this picture frame with Vanille.
After I got more paint, I used it on this dressmaker form a sweet friend gave to me. I had seen sofas and chairs painted and I thought, what the heck, why not paint the dressmaker form? I had thought about recovering her with muslin because I didn't like the color of the fabric she was in, but this was much easier.
I recently found this lacy apron that I thought was perfect for her.
I'm on a roll and am thinking of painting the kitchen chairs with the Vanille. Watch out family! You might get painted too!
