For the love of Patina!

If you're like me, you probably love soft blue/greens, whites and greys . . . and pretty much anything painted in Patina. This is one of those colours that just looks good everywhere. Honestly, any room in your home right now could probably benefit from something painted in van Gogh's Patina.

Take this console table for example.

I know it's going to look great in its new home - a kitchen console table with one drawer for each child to hide away their homework and school supplies . . . so they're off the kitchen table. 

The hardware on this piece got the restyle treatment too. We used van Gogh's Liquid Metal paint in 'Mother In Law' to bronzify these pulls. They were originally a silver colour that wasn't going to match the style of the kitchen - or the gorgeous oversized paris style clock that will hang above it. 

Also recently custom restyled in Patina is this adorable end table. I love the oval top and the pedestal base. The details of this piece were enhanced with a little distressing, but mostly by using van Gogh beeswax in French Caffeine

The secret to using the French Caffeine beeswax is to let it really build up in the details of your piece while buffing out as much as possible in the smooth areas. 

I couldn't resist styling this table with the beautiful hydrangeas that my mom dropped off at the studio. Cut fresh from her garden, so deliciously beautiful and delivered with a thoughtful hand - thank you mamma! Love!
