Here's what Nina tackled at home after buying some Omaha Ocher paint from the Paris Flea Market:
It's a Sirocco type framed mirror--you know the sort of gaudy gold, plastic/resin material that most often has very gorgeous and intricate details? If only there were a way, somehow, to make it a bit more, palatable for it to fit in with a French romantic styled home?? Hmm??? DUH (hit's self on forehead!) there is, of course, and Nina (a self-proclaimed novice painter) happily figured out how easy it was!
She started by brushing and dabbing the Omaha Ochre into the swirly details and let it dry. Then she returned once again with Virginia Chestnut and a light touch to achieve a perfectly lightly distressed finish.
Pretty cool huh? It was so easy, Nina says, that she's already got plans for her next project: a bombe chest! She does leave us with one caveat on a slight problem she has with CeCe Caldwell's Paints: choosing which of the 36 colors to use!
