Painting With Baking Soda
Have you tried this painting technique? I have used this technique on a few different pieces and I love the texture and overall look it creates. I’ve seen pieces with this texture in high end stores, and I’m obsessed with them, but the price tag…not so much. Creating this look at home is super easy. And you probably already have everything you need on hand. If you don’t have vases or bottles on hand, check out your local thrift store or yard sales. Because you’re going to be painting them, they don’t need to be pretty. Instead, focus on the shape and height you’re going for. These look really good in groups of three with varying heights and shapes.
For the ones I did, I just used bottles I had purchased at Hobby Lobby some time ago. They ended up in a closet, forgotten. But now that they have new life, I’ve had so much fun using them in my decor.
It’s amazing what some paint and a couple of hours can achieve. I’m a firm believer in the power of paint. Whether you’re painting a room, a piece of furniture, or a piece of decor. You’re creating something that is uniquely yours. And giving new life to an otherwise forgotten piece. Or an outdated space.
For these particular bottles I used Antique White paint from Glidden in a flat finish. Glidden paint is available here http://www.homedepot.com. I always like to use paint with a flat finish. It is really good at hiding imperfections. And when using it on walls, I love the matte finish it gives without reflecting the light or creating a glare. And again. hiding imperfections. However, it is harder to clean than a semi-gloss. So for kitchens and bathrooms I like to use either semi-gloss or satin paint. It is easier to wipe clean.
