how to whitewash brick

Shabby chic and vintage-inspired, a kind of rusty decor is extremely popular today as old times have their own unique charm that leaves a lasting impression. Designers create adorable shabby chic and only vintage interiors, filling them with gorgeous worn furniture, textures and accessories, and many of us are following the trend too. There are several techniques that can be used to achieve an aging look: patina paint, aging and weathering solutions for wood and metal, and whitewash for all types of surfaces.

Whitewash is the most popular idea as it is incredibly easy to implement and there is no shabby chic interior without shabby whitewashed parts or surfaces. If you have brick or faux brick walls or a fireplace, whitewashing is pretty easy and only necessary for you. We’re going to show you some guides on how to do this.

First, cover any floor space around your brick with tape, paper, or whatever, or you will get whitewashed flooring too. Mix up your whitewash. For the first layer, mix 1 cup of latex paint (eggshell or satin gloss) with 1 cup of water. Just dip the tip of your brush (1 / 4-1 / 2 in.) Into the whitewash, blot the paint over a brick, and blot it off. Then, twirl them and work them into the nooks and crannies. In a few minutes the whitewash penetrates the brick and appears more translucent. If you really think you’ve put too much paint on, you can blot the paint off with a rag or add a little more water to the solution. For your 2nd layer, the ratio of whitewash should be 1 cup of paint: 2/3 cup of water. Apply the 2nd layer only to the areas that need it. Voila! You can find more tutorials and ideas below.

Legos are one of the favorite toys of boys and girls. You are creative and keep developing. I think a lot of children have them at home. Turn your child's favorite toy into a party theme when there is an occasion! LEGO children's parties are brave, fun and easy to recreate.

LEGO party decor

Lego is a fantastic party theme as you can use these pieces to decorate yourself or just imitate them yourself! Invite your children to play with Legos and make tableware and napkin racks, signs with the name or age of the birthday child, or draw faces in Lego style on balloons. Add colorful tassels, cardboard signs, banners, and other decor. Place favors in Lego-style boxes and turn your doors into giant LEGOs.

LEGO party food

Lego party food should be colorful and no less fun than the decor itself! Make rice krispie treats and cookies in LEGO shape, decorate cupcakes and the cake with edible LEGO figures and make your own Lego rubbers, that's a brilliant idea! Take bold desserts like macarons in traditional LEGO colors and all the kids will be delighted to eat them! Don't forget to decorate a dessert table yourself with Legos, banners and garlands with Lego motifs.
