Last summer while I was at sleep-away summer camp at Meadowbrook Farm, two of the many treasures I found while roaming the Montana countryside were a pair of vintage sleds, slated for my vintage Christmas stockpile.
And since some time has passed since I last painted and then unpainted anything, I pointed my trusty paintbrush in the direction of Sled #1.
(Sled #2 has already moved on to a new home although it did not escape a makeover – it received a not-shiny coat of red paint first).
I randomly mixed together some selections from what feels like my own personal paint store (HI! I collect cans of house paint! That’s perfectly normal.) and came up with an aqua-ish option.
I watered it down quite a bit and after about 15 minutes of dry-brushing and 3 tablespoons of paint later, it’s ready to be sanded.
I just did a quick all-over light sanding to soften the brush strokes and then called it good.
I heart easy projects.
And now it’s hanging out with some of its vintage Christmas buddies, waiting for snow.
