Snow paint


We found this great method, on how to snow paint objects, from the beautiful Icelandic Facebook page Franska Liljan (French Lilies). Very interesting method that works well on ordinary mason jars, glass, statues, vases and other things.

You will need:

1 dl. White glue

1 dl White acrylic paint

1 dl Baby Powder

Some water



All mixed together in a bowl and stir well to be thick like waffle dough. Then you paint the outside of the object. It needs to be painted three rounds and let dry between, it dries well with hairdryer. Then you can decorate as desired. See more beautiful things on Franska Liljan.

A few years ago James Pickering was in New York visiting his friend, Timothy Warr, when the duo spotted a brightly upholstered chair in a   shop window.  It was a poor quality reproduction piece and, despite its outrageous price tag, was attracting a lot of attention.  It was a “we can do that, but better” moment, and in less than an hour Antique 2 Chic was born.

So when you inherit a vintage sofa from Aunt Fran that is just not your style, look at it from a different approach.  With a little imagination and restoration, it will take a place of pride in your living room.
