RETAINING WALL QUICK FIX July 27 2017, 0 Comments

WONKY RETAINING WALL FIXER UPPER.  I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO POST THESE PHOTOS SINCE SPRING BUT OF COURSE PROCRASTINATION IS MY MIDDLE NAME. I HAD THIS CROOKED, RUSTIC, VERY DISTRESSED RETAINING WALL LINING PART OF MY DRIVEWAY AND HAVE BEEN WANTING TO REPLACE IT FOR SOMETIME. OF COURSE THIS YEAR REPLACING IT WAS NOT IN THE BUDGET!  SEEING AS I AM ALL ABOUT RE PURPOSING VINTAGE FINDS AND CREATING RUSTIC SIGNS I DECIDED TO GIVE THIS WALL A BIT OF CHARACTER. WITH A BIT OF PAINT AND SEALANT THIS PROJECT TOOK ME UNDER 2 HOURS.

PLEASE VIEW THE REST OF THE PHOTOS BELOW.

I had picked up this little wooden jug/recipe book holder awhile ago but had no idea what I was going to do with it. While on my daily visit to the Graphics Fairy website I came across the perfect image. The image was of an ironstone pitcher which looked exactly like my thrift store find. I absolutely loved the vintage antique crockery shop advertisement and new it would be perfect!  I painted the pitcher in an apple green and the bottom black chalkboard paint. I then printed the image, traced it, then painted it on and voila here is the finished product.
