How to revalue porcelain houses with Colorantic
How to revalue porcelain with Colorantic. The holiday season is fast approaching, when decorating ideas are limitless.
Although I really love traditional Christmas decorations, I also love new ones. The current trend in decorations is raw wood and we also find a lot of white, gilding, silver and bling-bling without forgetting all the pastel and flamboyant tones.
It was on a very beautiful morning at the beginning of November 2017, sitting in the workshop in front of the crackling wood stove, my feet firmly resting on a log and a good hot chocolate in my hand, that I suddenly had this crazy desire to modernize our Christmas decorations.
Over time, I had less and less interest in these porcelain houses which were used to create the village under the tree. Finding them obsolete, I put them away, telling myself that one day I would revive them. With my idea of reinventing our Christmas, I quickly found myself head first in the bottom of a bin to pull out this treasure buried for several years.
So excited about my project and my head full of ideas, just a few minutes later I was in creation mode.
So here is my first transformation for the “2017 Christmas Decorations” theme.

As a big fan of “makeovers”, there is no question of reinvesting large sums of money for new Christmas decorations that are only used for a few weeks a year. I also don’t like accumulating unnecessarily, which is why I prefer to give a second, third…and even fourth life to my priceless treasures.
Living in the beautiful Laurentians region, I create a lot using the beautiful treasures that nature offers us.
