Let’s catch up!
What has been happening around Dandelion Patina this past week?
I have been spending some time in our basement organizing. I have big plans to transform the only room in the basement with a window. It will be a fun hang out space for the girls, as well as a place to create. I can’t wait to share the process with you.
I am also working on a DIY project for my contributor post over at The Everyday Home, which will go live Wednesday. Did you happen to catch last months? I created a fun display of snowflakes.
And, I transformed a vintage kitchen scale today! I tried out a new paint called Mudpaint in Manor White. I love trying out new products. And I love white, but it can be a bit tedious to paint a large furniture piece with white. It has always taken 3 good coats to get a decent final finish.
How about you?
I have been searching for a vintage white scale for weeks. I found one at a local antique store, but I got distracted by another piece and forgot to go back to the booth and grab it. Unfortunately, when I went back the next day, it was gone.
But, then the light bulb went on.
I already have a vintage kitchen scale.
And, I have mudpaint in manor white to try out. Ding, ding, ding!
The scale is pretty cool, isn’t it? It tells a story of the past and it is still fully functional. But, I wanted a fresh white one. So, when you can’t find exactly what you want (or in my case forget to go back and grab it) just paint something you already have!
Honestly, I was slightly worried about the paint adhering to the metal. But, what is life without taking a risk or two? And, I worried for nothing. Mudpaint adhered beautifully. The process took 2 coats and was finished with wax top coat.
Here are a few other transformations with mudpaint in manor white:
I would really LOVE for you to follow along!
*disclaimer: I was provided with paint for this post from Mudpaint, but, all opinions on vintage pieces and my love of white are my own.
