What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there friends!

How is your week going??

Shhhhh - I'm going to let you in on a secret . . . we're going to be having a pretty serious black friday sale this weekend on loads of 'as is' furniture at the studio! So if you're looking for a project or need a little something to get your creative juices flowing, be sure to visit us on Friday or Saturday this weekend! (more details to come)!

For now, lets take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

First up this week is a dining hutch painted by Kathy using our Fusion Mineral paint in 'Cranberry'.  Kathy joined us this past weekend for our first ever Holiday Maker's Day workshop - she spent a super fun Saturday painting and creating with us and went home with 4 beautiful holiday projects! We have a few spaces left in our upcoming workshops if you would like to join us - last chance before the holidays! Click here to see our schedule.

Back to Kathy's cabinet - Cranberry is such a great colour on this! Especially this time of year! Looks beautiful Kathy - nice job!

Here is a picture of Kathy's cabinet 'before'. . . I love how painting the inside of a cabinet in a lighter colour brightens the whole piece - and really lets you showcase your pretty display items!

Great job Kathy - thank you for sharing with us!

Next up this week are some great end tables painted by Colin. Colin used our van Gogh Fossil paint on these. All of them were painted in 'Chalk' white. The set of two tables with the shell details had an antique glaze applied and the hex shaped table had a natural and antique beeswax applied. Two great ways to really add some depth and beauty to the details of your painted pieces! Stop by our studio and we can show you how!

Here is a look at Colin's tables 'before' . . . quite dark and dated and as you can see they were definitely in need of a new look!

Great job (as always) Colin! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Last up but certainly not least is a dresser restyled by Stephen. Stephen picked up this dresser 'as is' from our studio recently. He took it home and gave it a whole new look using our van Gogh Fossil paint in Pyjama Weather with a soft black beeswax finish - looks great Stephen!

Here is a look at his 'before' and 'after:

Great job Stephen - thanks so much for sharing with us!

And don't forget - if you are featured on our Wednesday blog you we will have a 10% discount waiting for you at the studio (valid for 30 days)! We don't always get to share pictures in the week that they are sent in, but we do hang on to them and try to share as many as we can because we love seeing your projects! It's so easy! All you have to do is e-mail your before and after pictures (or even just after pictures if that's all you have, lol) to: melanie@mangoreclaimed.com

Can't wait to see what'cha workin' on next! Happy painting!

Oh! And don't forget super sweet deals on 'as is' furniture coming up this weekend! Stay tuned!

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there!

How's your week going so far?!? Can you believe it's November already?!?

The holidays will be here before we know it and we're getting into the spirit of things with our upcoming holiday workshops! Including our Holiday Makers Day on November 18th where we will be creating 4 beautiful festive decor items in one super fun day! Check out our workshop schedule by clicking here!

But enough about us! Let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

First up this week is a beautiful desk restyled by Carrie using our van Gogh Fossil paint. 'Mascara' is the perfect slate grey - I really love this colour on honestly just about everything! I LOVE the gold hardware on this little desk and the styling here is just perfect for the coming holidays! Great job Carrie!

Kathie reclaimed a desk recently too! Instead of painting this little cutie she decided to use our stain and finishing oil overall to give it new life, and it looks great!

I love how the oil brings out the grain of the wood - and the best part is that with a finishing oil built right in this can be done in one step! (no top coat required)

Here is a look at Kathie's much darker and quite worn looking desk 'before':

Great job on this Kathie - thank you for sharing with us!

Last up this week (but certainly not least) is another beautiful desk restyled by Heather. Heather used van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Zeppelin' grey for the base of this desk and spent some extra care on the top by applying our stain and finishing oil in 'Ebony' for a super classy look! I love how this turned out - beautiful as always Heather!
