Fence Post Santa and Dark Wax

This Santa was made many years ago, 
way before I started blogging. 


He was made from an old fence. 

I pull out this old Santa every year...He is perfect to hang on a skinny wall.


Santa has gotten a little chippy over the years so to give him a little face lift, I gave him a coat of dark wax.

It darkened the bright red finish and gave him a more vintage look.



The dark wax renewed my old Santa and
got him ready for a few more good years!

  1. He is gorgeous! I would love to make one! I bought some antique wax. It's the Canadian version of Annie Sloan chalk paints, called van Gogh Chalk Paint. I haven't really used it much so I am not sure if I could give it my opinion. I am pinning this for my to do list! Merry Christmas Susan!

  2. Oh yes..... me too got out the dark wax. It met an old sled and just about every other piece of painted folk art I had made. Now it actually looks vintage as opposed to something I had painted. My only tip... buy a box of those cheap plastic gloves at a supply house. I hate the feeling of the wax and having it under my nails.
