What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there!

Happy Wednesday!

For those of you with little ones that have gone back to school . . . congratulations! You've finally got some time to paint that project you've been thinking about, lol! Oooh and fall is in the air - there's nothing like the pang of September and a slight crispness in the air that  gets me itching for a new creative project! How about you??

For those of you lucky enough to carve out some time over the summer to refresh your furniture, let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

First up this week is a beautiful kitchen set that Lynne restyled. van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Zeppelin' grey looks great on this set, don't you think?

Normally I'm not a big advocate of painting the chair frames and leaving the seats natural - with one exception . . .when the seats are a nice rattan like this. Great choice Lynne! I would have done the same thing - and the warmth of the natural rattan can now really be appreciated!

Here is a look at Lynne's kitchen set 'before':

Beautiful work Lynne - thanks for sharing with us!

Next up this week is a sweet dresser restyled using Fusion Mineral paint in 'Champlain' by Sherri Ann! Wow this turned out fantastic! The top sanded out and re-stained looks incredible and the new hardware looks great too!

Here is a look at Sherri Ann's dresser 'before', as you can see it was in serious need of a restyle!

Beautiful work Sherri Ann - thank you so much for sharing your project with us!

Last up this week, but never least is a super creative project by Rise! This beautiful and completely unique hall table was created using table legs picked up from the 'as is' inventory in our studio. Sometimes a small or unique space calls for a creative solution and Rise did a fantastic job with this one! Once her table was assembled (with a new top added), she painted the whole thing out in van Gogh's 'Cashmere' for a uniform and soft look. Stunning!

Here's the part you won't believe - the before picture. These legs were originally for a much larger dining table, but in the end they make the perfect pretty base to a custom made and painted hall console table. I love it!
