Thrifted Box Sign & Candleholder to Farmhouse Decor


 I just recently purchased this Primitives by Kathy  friends box sign at the thrift shop.  

The candle holder on the right was once a thrift shop purchase that has been painted quite a while ago but 
is being reused.


The box sign was attached to the top of the candle stick with a screw and washer.

Pre-drill the holes!

 I ended up adding a another hunk of candle-holder base from my stash to the bottom.  

I just felt the piece was a little too tippy.

So now this additional candle stick base with a LARGE hole (probably from a project fail) is added to the bottom.

I painted my box sign and two candle stick parts with Chalked Paint in Chiffon Cream.

Chalked is a cheaper version of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
 
Next, I pulled out my favorite stencil, buffalo check, from *Old Sign Stencils.

I stenciled the buffalo checks with Deco Art Chalky Finish Paint in Rouge.


This farm animal stencil is from Hobby Lobby.

I love the rooster stencil.

I added it with Ceramcoat acrylic craft paint in black.

I love red buffalo checks and black roosters!

I used my FolkArt Layering Wood Block with Ceramcoat Craft Paint in Walnut Noyer to lightly distress the piece.

I still love the layering block, but continue to learn new tricks with it.  More information on the technique here.

Sometimes I need to touch up after a boo-boo.  

I sealed this piece with a chip brush and Deco Art Creme Wax, 8-Ounce, Clear
