Using Homestead House Milk PaintCutting Edge Stencils & Krylon spray paint I achieved my vision.

Fusion Fresco


Fusion Mineral Paint has a new product to add texture and dimension to your décor called fresco.

Fresco?.. old world plaster look is what I think of when I saw it. I needed just the right piece for my vision so when these very simple styled end tables came along I decided to try this new product on them.

first I gave the tables a coat of little piggy in a messy pattern

then it was time to mix up the fresco powder and paint, I went 1:1 with newly released lichen


and used the same messy pattern application


when dry I put on a coat of casement


then sanded it down to reveal the dimension and colors

 here it is, very old world looking right?


a bit more close up


and here they are both together for their photo shoot
