I found and re-painted several of them last year. The bakery and the fabric shop will get the white treatment today.
It is actually warm enough in northern Minnesota to spray paint outside!
I used a white satin spray paint by Rustoleum. I sprayed each side twice and then set them upright for the last all over spray.
Now the buildings are back in the house on newspaper. I now dipped my finger in Aleene's Tacky Glue and rubbed it on the roofs and any areas where I wanted snow to collect. I sprinkled the glued areas with mica snow.
Remember my coral tiled vintage bathroom? Last year a friend of mine that owns Snowman Hill in Duluth, Minnesota gave me this painted snow village idea.
I was telling her that I never decorated my long vanity in my bathroom because Christmas just didn't work in there.
I don't plug them in. I hate all the cords, but I did find that very flat flameless candles would fit up in the bulb hole and give off a fair amount of flickering light through the window holes. Of course the candles are packed away with the rest of my Christmas decor so I can't show you.
Isn't it hard to believe the lighthouse looked like this before?
I still like my little white snow village, and it didn't cost me very much!
