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!

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

First up this week is a beautiful restyled kitchen set! Julianne did a great job on giving new life to this worn set! Using van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Morning Mist' and 'Chivalry' on this table and chairs freshened up the whole look!

I'm sure we all know what this set looked like 'before' - almost everybody's got one, lol. Did you know they can be restyled to look so nice?!? Here is Julianne's table and chairs 'before':

Awesome job Julianne - thank you so much for sharing with us!!

Next up this week is a barn door restyled by Matt - he used layers of our Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint to create a barn weathered look in a beautiful custom colour. I love how this turned out! 

We have a few barn doors on display in our studio as well in different milk paint colours - stop by to have a look in person :) These make a great project! You can pick up unfinished barn doors and hardware at your local big box store (Home Depot / Lowes), then swing by Mango Reclaimed to grab some milk paint! The colour options are endless!

Looks awesome Matt - thank you so much for sharing with us!

Last up, but definitely not least this week is a sweet restyled desk by Maree. Fusion Mineral paint in 'Lamp White' gave this desk a fresh new look!

Here's a look at Maree's desk 'before' - a cute piece, but the colour wasn't working with her decor. Great job Maree - thank you for sharing with us!
