Remember these from a few weeks ago?
Stage one I painted them in ombre greys
The darker one is the house trim and the bottom one is the house colour and the middle is a mixture of both.
I debated long and hard whether to go from lighter to darker or from darker to lighter.
In the end darker to lighter won- simply because I had more dark paint than light left in the sample pots I was using.
Then I decided to distress them so you can see some of the original colour through
- if I had been a bit brighter I might have thought to paint them white first so two colours came through.
Then I drew on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
I debated about doing a big 1,2,3 right in the middle, but thought this was a little more subtle.
VCH wonders why I keep numbering stuff- MEN!!!
What do you think?
I really don't have any use for them so am thinking of selling them.
I really love them and I am now on the look out for some more to do up and sell at a little market stall sometime- well I can dream!
