This was inspired by Pottery Barn’s NOEL and the House of Hawthorn’s beautiful Zinc-like 25.
Unfinished 18” NOEL from www.unfinishedwoodco.com $17.99
Black acrylic paint
Gray acrylic paint
Light Red Oxcide acrylic paint
Lipstick Red acrylic paint
I began by coating the entire NOEL with black paint.
Then I let it dry and sanded it lightly. I took a brush and lightly dry brushed with gray and Light Red Oxcide (FolkArt). I let dry to the touch.
Finally, I heavily dry brushed with Lipstick Red (FolkArt). I sprayed with Acrylic Sealer to finish.
The entire project took me about 30 minutes. I am not sure I needed to dry brush with gray as it is not very visible in the finished project.
