There is only one way to paint a grain bin.
Like a grain sack, of course!
Grain bin bought at the auction a couple of weeks ago.
Great saw marks.
Took the easy road to distressing.
First a swipe of a loaded brush.
Then follow with a swipe of a dry brush.
No sanding necessary.
This is a no-name OOPS paint.
Taped off for the stripes.
First two stripes.
Pounced blue with my trusty stencil brush.
While the paint is still slightly wet, I drag the brush through for a fabric look.
I retaped between the stripes for a thinner companion in the middle.
At this point I was on the fence about lettering or not.
I decided the bin needed a name.
Yes, I often stencil letters upside down.
I can never leave stenciled letters alone.
I fill in the blank spaces and highlight with a shadow.
So the bin's name is GRAIN.
It can be found in Booth C-23.
Riverfront Antique Mall.
It is filled with lacy stuff right now.
However I am planning to make something special for it.
