Enter the star...
Those of you who know me, or have been following along with me, will know that I love a simple graphic pattern. I love stipes, dots,and swiss crosses. These patterns show up all the time in both my work and in my house. I love their boldness matched with their simplicity. It was only a matter of time before I added stars into the mix.
I picked this bar cart up the other day at a favorite thrift store. It was in desperate need of some love, but had great bones. It didn't take me long to decide what to do with her. She called out for something more than just a solid colour, but nothing too fancy. It still had to be simple.
Oh and I took these pics before the hardware was re-attached. Just too impatient I guess.
Here she is before:
A slight upgrade, I think.
Here is what I did:
- under painted in charcoal grey
- 2 coats of homemade chalk paint in pure white
- hand painted starts in a random pattern
- light distressing
- waxed and buffed for protection
You can find all these images, as well as a link to their original source on my Pinterest page.
Come on, admit it, you're loving the stars as well.
