Today I’m going to be showing you how to paint a porch leaner. These are so fun to decorate your front door with.
I wanted to paint an Ombre affect so I start with a cream color on the top 1/3 and then bring in some yellows as I work my way down. I picked up my favorite, very well used, 2″ chip brush. And then just start pulling the paint down. I am using a color called Light Buttermilk. I had to add more paint as I went along. The yellow was brighter than I wanted so I added some of the Light Buttermilk to lighten it up. If your paint isn’t blending enough you can always dip your brush in a little water. I added just a hint of Dark Chocolate brown paint to the bottom and the edges. Blend it in just a hint. And make a little boarder.
Then I free handed some large sunflowers on the board. I paint a half circle on the side of the board and then make some pretty petals. I give each half flower 4 to 5 petals. I do this all with a 1″ flat brush and dark chocolate brown paint.
I then add some light buttermilk to the dark chocolate to make a light brown and fill in the center of the flowers. I blob on the paint to make lots of texture.
Going back to my big 2″ chip brush, I add yellow to the light buttercream to fill in the flower petals. Play with the ratios to find a color you like. But make sure it is a different color than the back ground. Then I go back with a smaller brush and go over the petal out lines again, in dark chocolate brown.
Then I go for my favorite, 24K Gold Extreme Sheen by DecoArt!!! I love it so much. I just blob on some golden highlights on the petals. Don’t over think it. I stick to the same side of all the petals. I also use some Champagne Gold Metallic paint to stamp on some more texture into the center of the flowers. It is very therapeutic.
After I let the board paint dry a little and then lay down my stencils. I used my favorite Essential Stencil “Fall”. Then I used some Dark Chocolate Brown mixed Antique Copper to stencil in the word “Fall”. I ended up adding more Antique Copper.
Then I did something I was sure would look crazy or not. I wanted to add some dots to the background in turquoise. So I had to pick the perfect turquoise. Everyone choose picked Sea Breeze Turquoise and a large round dauber in the background. Using a piece of paper when you only need a half of a circle works great!
I also show you a fun way to clean up any lettering. I take a good liner brush and some Laguna Turquoise and quickly go around the letters on one side. I choose the left side and the bottom. Make sure to stay consistent with all the letters. This little trick also helps the letters pop more.
I finish it off with a quick burlap bow. I am not a great bow maker. But I have found a fast easy way to make the perfect finishing bow.
