What do you do when you're trapped at home, in the middle of a heatwave, with sick kids? Chew on a Xanax? Nice thought, but today I think I'll break out the paint!
An Advent calendar has been sitting in my drawer for the past two years waiting to be decorated. Why the long wait? I kept forgetting I had it!
Burnt Umber - my choice for antiquing.
Combined with a bit of Walnut Ink for more depth.
The manufacturers used a high gloss finish, making the paint and ink difficult to adhere; because of this, I thought it best I just paint the tops. All of these little boxes fit into a larger box with 24 cubbies.
What will the finished calendar look like?
I haven't gotten that far!
