So I got home and gave the sign a couple coats. And it came out a little too bright. Ok - actually A LOT too bright.
Ummm... yeah, not quite what I was going for actually. However, I remembered that when I did my spring apples that came out a little too bright that Heidi from Heart & Home recommended using a little brown shoe polish to bring them down a couple notches. So I pulled that out and gave the sign a little wash and I think the finished project came out right where I wanted it. So what do you think?
I like it much better! The shoe polish gives it an more aged weathered look.
Actually - it almost looks more like ironstone or metal than ceramic now due to the gloss finish on the spray paint! I LOVE it!
Here is a better shot of our entryway! Isn't it cute?
So cute - that is IF you take out the creepy ghost child hand (so dubbed by Miss Cape on the Corner). Seriously - we lived here for a month before I noticed it was there.
Either way I like it! (Though I must find a way to exorcise the Ghost Child.) What tips do you have to "modify" a paint job that has come out too bright? And do you have any idea how to get white paint off brick?? Lemme know!
