A few weeks ago I showed you this key plaque that was part of a good garage sale day.
A couple of weeks ago I painted it with Old White chalk paint. Then I was stumped. It definitely needed something else to bring it to life. Does that ever happen to you? I put it on the side and decided to give it some thought before rushing into anything. I finally decided on watering down some brown craft paint and doing a glaze over the Old White with it.
Just the type of look I wanted and I think it has updated this key plaque nicely!
That looks GREAT, Kathy!
Plan on keeping or putting in booth?
If selling, write me, I am interested!
Have a wonderful weekend.
I agree is does show off the key more. I really like it.
The glaze was the perfect touch, I love it. Hugs, Marty
wow its beautiful now. love what ya did to it.
It looks very pretty in both the before and after pictures. Really a nice garage sale find. Are you keeping it????
Happens all the time that I need that extra something, this did the trick!
Beautiful! Great job!

Very cute! I like it a lot better white- Is it a keeper or a seller?;>) xo Diana
The key to a good project is seeing the possibilities...it looks great!
You asked about the benefits of doing the store window. yes, I hope I sell everything in the window and that it will pull people into my booth...We'll see!
Much better glazed. Yes, I do that all the time. Sometimes you have to wait for the right inspiration.
What a great find! It looks perfect now.
Kathy, I love your key now! Your added just the right amount of glaze! It's a great piece!
looks good! great job
Looks great! I almost always end up adding glaze to my painted projects. I need to find more of those large keys!
What a nice find! The new color looks so pretty!
This looks great what a perfect addition. Wish in NJ we had good garage sales, here it is all junk. Not even good junk but JUNK!
That really does look so great now! The power of paint!
Hi Kathy, I love the key!!
I've got some keys I may have to do this!!
