18 Jan How I Created a Faux Zinc Finish
Does it ever take way longer for anyone else to accomplish things? It does for me like ALL THE TIME.
I painted this in one of my favorite colors, Young Kansas Wheat the day I got it but it just didn’t do anything for me. It was too plane Jane for my liking. It needed something, a French Label, a stencil, dry brushing, layering ~ something.
I pondered ideas while I waited for a light bulb to go off…
Finally it hit me ~ I’d try a faux zinc finish to resemble those pieces in Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn.
The other super cool vintage faux zinc table that I thought would be appropriate for my table top was inspired by Kelli from Restore Interiors.
