A few weeks ago when we were in Oregon, we went to one of my favorite stores in Eugene. Barb, from Treasures From the Heart was having a "Junque in the Trunk Sale" with lots of vendors. What perfect timing! Ok, we weren't planning to go to Eugene until the next day, but I didn't want to miss her sale, so we changed our plans. :)
I always find great things at her store. I need to walk around several times so I don't miss anything!
One of the fun things I found at the sale was this milk can. The couple who was selling it had worked hard to clean it up and paint this very cute cow on it. I loved it, but it was a little too bright for me.
Enter some handy-dandy Minwax Provincial stain and the brightness was toned down.
I put a couple of coats on with a foam brush, then lightly wiped it off with an old sheet. I let it dry (not hard in our 100+ degree heat the past several days!) I then put a coat of clear flat spray on it. And now I love it in the house.
Thank you for your visit!
