An Upcycle of a Thrift Shop Upcycle


 I purchased this pitcher plaque at the thrift shop for a couple bucks.

I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and stenciled it with "Flowers" in French and added a little shelf.  I liked the finished project but was never happy with the light blue paint showing through on the sandpaper distressed edges.  So I re-painted the whole thing with Rustoleum Chalked Paint in Chiffon Cream.  This time I didn't sand the edges to distress, I used my FolkArt Layering Block and Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Walnut Noyer .  Details on the layering block are here.



Instead of adding a French stencil, I used this ironstone pitcher graphic from the Graphics Fairy and the Mod Podge Image Transfer method.

I brushed on some Varathane Clear Matte Finish Soft Touch Polyurethane  to protect the transfer and chalk paint.

I am thinking about hanging the plaque in a spare bedroom.  I have a little pitcher to put on the shelf and I love this faux hanging sedum from Allstate Floral.

I will be sharing the bedroom mini makeover when complete!  I will be using many more of my thrift shop projects in the makeover.
