van Gogh in the Kitchen!

Hello! What is it about summer time and warm weather that encourages us to entertain? Longer days inspire relaxing dinners and time spent around the table with family and friends. It seems that everyone lately wants to freshen up their kitchen space and they're coming to Mango Reclaimed to get it done.  Here are a few of the kitchen restyles that were done using van Gogh furniture paint.

This custom restyle was done for an instant kitchen update. The table and chairs fit my customers space perfectly and had sentimental value as a family heirloom, however the style no longer suited their space. After a quick consultation on colour we devised the perfect colour scheme to give some new life to this kitchen set.

 Grey and white with a touch of natural is the perfect colour combination!

Painting out these chairs made a huge difference. We painted these in van Gogh's 'chivalry' and left the seats in their original state to preserve some warmth against the soft cool grey. I love how they turned out! (check below for a before picture of the chairs) The table was painted in 'morning mist' and 'chivalry' with just a mild amount of distressing.

Another customer had a kitchen update done by selecting this pedestal table from our over stocked storage room and collaborating on a colour scheme to match their current space. This table was van Gogh painted overall in 'cashmere'. A beautiful soft creamy colour that works in almost any space!

A two tone effect was created on this table by painting the whole thing in 'cashmere' and then using the van Gogh beeswax in 'french caffeine' on just the table base. The table top was given a satin and super durable finish using van Gogh's 'Table Top Finish'. Beautiful!

Table for one anyone? This adorable drop leaf was restyled to fit a young urban apartment where space can be an issue. The drop leaves add versatility allowing the table to be tucked away when not in use. A sweet green chair looks fresh and inviting alongside the white distressed table.

The chair was van Gogh painted in 'calm seas' and the table was painted overall in 'morning mist'. Definitely a fun colour combination.
