I always love decorating our home for fall. Maybe it is because we have orange siding so it just fits so well with the season and our surroundings. Plus I live in a heavy agriculture region so it so easy to get our hands on pumpkins, gourds, unique squash, and of course apples and pears.
This year I decided to get a bit more vintage with my fall decorating ideas.
I was recently asked to give the New Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint a try and I must say I’m in love! The paint couldn’t have been a better fit for my country decor pieces that needed a little TLC.

I found this old basin at my Aunt’s house that was destined for the dump. The bottom is quite rusted so not good for much other than a decoration.
See how easy it was to give it a vintage decor makeover…
This paint can be used on a variety of surfaces. I was eager to try it on metal, but can be used on wood, glass, and fabric. The best part, it needs NO preparation!
- Wipe the surface or your object clean.
- Apply the color paint you would like to show through your distressing first with the Martha Stewart Crafts® Vintage Decor Paint Brush. Allow to dry for 1-2 hours. I used the colors Red Wagon, and Linen for this project.
- Apply your second color directly over the first. Allow to dry.
- Use sandpaper distress your project to the desired effect. I went quite rough in some areas to show through a bit of the metal.
- Again wipe the surface clean to rid your piece of sanding dust.
- Apply Martha Stewart Crafts® Vintage Decor Wax with the Vintage Decor Paint Brush or a lint free cloth. I think the wax is my favourite part of the entire project. I LOVE the velvet finish it gives the project. I have used it on countless projects!
How to Paint a Harvest Sign with Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint
- Follow step 1 and 2 from above.
- Apply vinyl letters to your project after the first coat of paint dries.
- Paint the second color of Vintage Decor Paint directly over the vinyl letters.
- Remove the letters.
- Distress with sandpaper. I actually used a palm sander for this sign as I wanted the edges to reveal the wood.
- Apply a Martha Stewart Crafts® Vintage Decor Stencils with a small stencil brush.
I love how the Harvest sign turned out. A perfect match for fall decorating.
