Today I finished painting a vintage scale that I was lucky enough to find in a antique store. It's from the American Family Scale Company. It was patented on July 17th 1913. It is in very good condition. The face of the scale had no imperfections at all. I base coated it a country red and antique white. On both sides I hand painted saltbox scenes. At the top I painted a black crow with some vines. I just love finding old things and giving them life again. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!
I'm a decorative painter of primitive, country, and folk art. One of my passions is painting saltbox houses, creating many different kinds of Christmas trees, and painting unique containers to put them in for the Holidays. I paint on many unique surfaces that I find at the flea markets. You can find my hand painted items on Ebay & Etsy. My ID on Ebay is 3148denise in the hand painted section.
