Chivalry coffee table, Balsamic bedside tables and a Mustard Seed Yellow coat rack.

Here are some oldies but goodies. I can't believe I haven't shared these yet! Sorry folks!

These are a few custom orders we did a few months back, starting with this hexagon coffee table. What once looked dated now looks elegant painted in van Gogh 'Chivalry'. 

Mild distressing overall followed by a combination of natural and french caffeine beeswax add some character and warmth to this beautiful cool grey colour.

These bedside tables were quite honestly a bit of a challenge for me. They were selected to be custom restyled from our inventory for their low profile and ample storage. I do love the lines of them - (we still have the long and low dresser and mirror available if your interested - or if you just want to see what these looked like before). It's not often that I am asked to paint pieces out in brown so I was a tad skeptical, but the van Gogh 'Balsamic' with french caffeine beeswax really makes these bedside tables look rich and I love how they turned out!

Lastly for today is this hall tree that we had in the studio. Originally I had been using it to hang bags and merchandise by the checkout but when a customer asked if it was for sale, I said 'of course'. They requested it be painted in Mustard Seed Yellow from the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint line which is a colour that I truly love. Once complete my customer provided their own hooks to be added as well as some sweet smaller hooks so their grandchildren could hang their coats as well. Love!

Thanks for following along! If you have something you would like restyled or would like to learn how to restyle your furniture yourself I would love to hear from you

Patina and River Tides - oh how I love thee!

Welcome back from a beautiful weekend! Did you get any of your painting projects completed??

Today I want to share with you two of my favourite colours in the van Gogh paint line - 'River Tides' (which is custom to Mango Reclaimed) and 'Patina'.

First let's take a look at 'Patina'.  This colour is the perfect go to colour for almost any painting project! It's a soft blue/green that has excellent coverage properties. Its soft watery colour is gorgeous on tables, chairs, sideboards, benches, hall tree's. . . .

This custom restyle was painted overall in van Gogh Patina, given a mild distress and a clear wax finish - beautiful!

Who wouldn't love this colour?

Now let's take a look at 'River Tides'. It's sort of like Patina's bluer, bolder older sister. A bit more punchy and a bit more daring, but still soft and sweet . . .

This custom restyle was van Gogh painted in 'Patina', given a mild distress and both a clear and French caffeine protective wax finish.
