My mother was a collector. Of many things. Her rooster collection was substantial, to put it mildly. I was never a fan until very recently. I’ve seen them used in French styled decor all over Pinterest and I must admit when singularly used, I like the statement they make. I dig French Country, I just don’t have a house full of it. Over Christmas I brought home one of her roosters, a ceramic one. I remember sitting beside her in a ceramics class we took together when I was a kid. I also remember when she was working on the rooster. She kept It out on her covered porch, displayed on a wrought iron bakers rack. I wanted to bring it home with me for the past year but I never could make in work (in my brain) with my decor. Plus Big Daddy ain’t so fond of roosters. So I had an idea . . .
One of the reasons I am so fond of Chalk Paint is because it is self- priming. In other words, you can use it an ANYTHING. I mean it. Anything. Google it. So I decided to paint the big rooster to integrate it into my home. I knew it had to be either black or Old White (The Basics). I also new the big rooster was going in the kitchen. Then it was a no-brainier: Old White.
