Pink Vintage Stove

Pink dreams really do come true....
I am a true believer that if you decorate with things that make you happy, it is your best bet in the long run. It will never go out of style, and you will save so much money in the long run. Life is too short not to enjoy the things that sing to you and make you happy.

CHALK PAINT ON THE CHEAP

O.K so I was all on board with ordering this overpriced paint at 35.00 a quart...or so I thought. I got my paint color chart, and the pink was no where near any shade of pink IMO....Hmmmm do I really want to spend that on something I am not sure of....??? ...Nope...today I am mixing my own concoction in the blender....so far I am loving the results, and with items I had around the house....FREE...love it when that happens....





Latex paint , baking soda,soy sauce, and car wax...don't judge me, I'm cheap...lol









just mix 3 - 4 cups paint with 1 cup baking soda in a blender or mixer.paint your item ,let dry.Then apply wax...let dry..antique it with glaze or soy sauce , wipe off excess.let dry. rough up with steel wool or sandpaper.






it is still a little wet in this pic, it dried matte, but if you want it to stay shiny, just buff it with a dry rag.


I get a few extra packs of soy sauce  every time I get chinese, and it's free antiquing!!..there is so much salt and preservatives in it , it will never spoil.You can mix with a squirt of school glue to make it thicker also...

HAVE FUN!!!tion
