I had accumulated a few before..but had passed them on also..
I had one..in our garage attic..painted Provençal blue w/ some design I had done..folk art inspired~
Oh lala..not me at all anymore..
But..not too long ago..One caught my eye..on Pinterest.. She was so lucky to have a cute daughter to basecoat hers:) I have cute daughters but they are busy loving my grandchildren:)
It immediately inspired me to go to my saved ephemera..and climb up the garage attic stairs..and climb down w/this heavyweight heirloom of sorts~
I have so many saved ephemera from The Graphics Fairy..and found the perfect one..the one..she had used..the perfect one..in my mind's eye~
I am really happy I found that post..the ephemera..because now..it's no longer in the attic..no longer blue w/ wannabefolkart on it..it's in the sunroom..~
A few fresh coats of white paint..a copy of The Graphic's Fairy Ephemera and some Mod Podge~
And the day was done~
Remind me to take that little extra paint off the right bottom hand corner:)
Thanks to my inspirations..
I hope you have an old milk can from a flea market hanging around~
It felt lovely to repurpose my old can~
I was never really great at Folk Art~:)
