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!

What'cha workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday friends!

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

First up this week is a beautiful restyle by Helene. Just look at this pretty cabinet! Helene restyled this cabinet using van Gogh Fossil paint in Pyjama Weather (a soft warm grey) on the exterior and Cashmere (a soft creamy neutral) on the interior. . . and it looks great!

Just beautiful! I love how the inside is lighter to really showcase the glass doors and the original hardware looks perfect!

Let's take a look at this cabinet 'before':

Great bones, but dark and dated! Helene picked up this cabinet from our studio 'as is' and did a great job giving it a new look! Want one like this?!? We have one more available in the studio now :)

Thanks for sharing Helene! Great job!

Next up this week is a restyled duo by Julianne. A sweet child's rocker and book holder were given a great new look with van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Stormy Skies' and 'Chalk'. How adorable is this little set?!

Let's take a look at what these two looked like 'before':

Oh my! These are all too familiar, lol! Who doesn't have something like these lying around in the basement, or cottage that could look so much better with some paint???

Thank you for sharing your projects and for the inspiration Julianne - your discount is waiting :)

Last up this week, but definitely not least is a gorgeous cabinet restyle by Jane. Using Fusion Mineral paint in 'Coal Black' and van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Serenity', Jane gave this cabinet a whole new lease on life!

So classy looking!

Let's take a look at this cabinet 'before':

Great job on this Jane! Love the colour choices - looks beautiful!

First up this week is s a first timer . . . my oh my Kelly took on a big project for her first try!  And she did a fantastic job! Take a look at this bedroom set restyled in 'pyjama weather' from our van Gogh paint line:

This looks great Kelly! I love how you used the french caffeine wax to soften the overall look too. Thanks for sharing - can't wait to see what you do next!

Next up this week, here's a cute little side table restyled by Christina. You can see the table 'before' was crying out for some love and attention, lol! Christina used 'chivalry' and 'chalk' from our van Gogh line - and her little table has never looked better! 

The colour is a little off in the 'after' picture here, but I'm sure this table looks beautiful in a combination of soft grey and soft cream! Thanks for sharing Christina!

Next up this week is Diana's table restyled in 'mascara' and 'cashmere' . . . I can't believe I didn't share this one yet! Sorry Diana! This looks so good - thanks for sharing!!
