Snowman on Shutter Gray Fence Board

It's here!

My Milk Paint has arrived.




Merry Christmas to me!

I can't decide what I'm more excited about...

my "Santa Claus Blend" coffee beans

or my Ironstone and Shutter Gray Milk Paint

Paint and Coffee beans are two of my favorite things.





I have a plan to use the shutter gray

on a sideboard that will be our tv stand.

I will post about that soon.

But I had some extra paint

and I thought it would make a great winter sky

for my snowman painting.

Love the blue gray color!





I  cut two pieces from a cedar fence board,

attached them with a thin piece of of wood and screws

on the back, and stained the entire piece.





Then I brushed on the gray,





and painted a happy snowman

peeking out behind his scarf.





Pin It!





I look forward to sharing my new/old sideboard

painted in the shutter gray.

I will show you how it turned out next week!

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend,

Deb

Your snowman is adorable! You are quite talented. Is milk paint the same as chalk paint?

Too cute!! I would love to try this.
What size were your boards?
I like the idea of milk paint.
I as well love fresh coffee beans.
I can understand why the excitement.

Hey, that's fun thay you'll give it a try! 30" long fence boards. (5 1/2" wide each board).
You'll have a piece of happy winter art,
Deb
