Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint provided me with some sweet paint and painting goodies to try. The opinions and text are all mine.
I’m a sucker for a bargain and often end up buying things simply because they are ‘so cheap!’ 60% off? I’ve got to have it! Do I need it? No, but it’s such a great deal! And that’s how I ended up with ANOTHER picture frame and ANOTHER cute little box. Neither of which I needed, neither fit with my decor (90s textured wall paper and stained carpet) but both were soooo cheap! And perfect to try out Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint.
To prepare for painting I gave the trinket a light sand with sandpaper and removed the lid with a small screwdriver. I covered the wood on the front of the frame with Frogtape as I wanted to create a mix of colour and natural wood. The prep for both was seriously minimal. Mostly because I am lazy and have the attention span of a flea!
The colour I used is called ‘Duck Egg Blue’. It’s a lovely pale blue with a hint of minty green. Lovely and soothing and perfect for a little boy’s room. You can check out the range of Voodoo Molly colours on their website. The black crosses on the trinket box are simply a couple of pieces of Washi tape from Warehouse Stationery.
The first thing I noticed about applying Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint is the amazing coverage. It has an almost chalky texture and smooths on really well. I almost didn’t bother with a second coat – it was that good. I was prepared to have trouble covering the black triangles on the trinket box as I had barely sanded it but they disappeared in the first stroke.
I absolutely love the results and can’t wait to try out some other artsy craftsey projects with Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint!
