What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday!

We are working our little tails off a the studio right now - so many exciting projects coming together because I am super mega excited for our grand re-opening celebration coming up on May 6th! There is nothing like a deadline to kick my internal pinterest dreams into high gear reality! 

I hope you can stop into the studio on the 6th to celebrate with us - we have lots of ways we plan on showing you just how much we appreciate you! 

For now though - let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

This week were showcasing the painting skills of two awesome photographers that we are so lucky to have as customers! 

First up this week with a major colour pop is a bedroom restyled by Laurel of Laurel Leaf Photography. Laurel has a big beautiful personality and originally had a softer vision for her daughter Cielle's room - but Cielle had colour ideas of her own . . . what an amazing mom to just go for it! I mean, how crazy good does this room look?

Wowzers!! The desk was restyled using 'Revenge' and the bed was restyled using 'Confidence' from our van Gogh paint line. Amazing Laurel - thanks so much for sharing with us!

Next up this week is an adorable cabinet restyled by Andrea of Trio Photography. Andrea wrote a great blog post about how she restyled this cabinet to store a collection of vintage items, especially a collection of salt and pepper shakers passed down from her grandfather - don't you just love that?? If you want to read her post and see more pictures of this great cabinet, you can check it out here

This cutie cabinet was restyled with 'chalk' from our van Gogh paint line . . . and some serious modge podge! Love it! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us Andrea!

Oh, while were gushing, let's remember that Andrea is no stranger to modge podge restyling projects - you might remember her Calvin and Hobbes inspired dresser with 'And Your Little Dog Too' van Gogh paint from a while back . . .

So awesome!

Thank you so much to everyone for sending in their pictures! Can't wait to see what you do next!

And don't forget - if you are featured on our Wednesday blog you we will have a 10% discount waiting for you at the studio (valid for 30 days)! It's so easy you guys! All you have to do is e-mail your before and after pictures to: [email protected]

We. Can't. Wait!

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?


I'm not sure why I just said that, lol!

Anyhow, it's Wednesday, so let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on!

First up this week is a super creative dresser restyle using van Gogh paint, Mode Podge and a whole lotta Calvin and Hobbes

Andrea took her love of these comic book characters to a whole new level with this dresser! The framework was painted overall using 'And Your Little Dog Too', which is a gorgeous vibrant red from the van Gogh collection, and the drawers and top were completely Modge Podged with a collage of Calvin and Hobbes. So creative!

Andrea is also a photographer - can you tell from these great detail shots??

What an awesome project! Thanks so much for sharing this with us Andrea! 

To check out some of Andrea's photography work you can pop over to her website here, or her Facebook page here!

And here's one last look - with the 'before' as well.

Next up this week is a beautiful secretary desk restyled by Belinda. This dresser was also painted using van Gogh paint, but this time in 'River Tides' which is one of my signature custom colours! I also love the painted hardware - what a gorgeous combination!

Belinda didn't have a  picture of her desk before she painted it (probably too excited to get started on her project as I often am, lol)! However she was able to find this picture that she swears is almost identical to what her desk looked like before . . .

Thanks for sharing Belinda - you did a fantastic job!

Speaking of van Gogh custom colours at Mango Reclaimed, this next dresser was painted in 'Calm Sea's', which is another one of my signature colours! I just love this somehow both soft and vibrant sweet green - it looks gorgeous with yellows or rich blues.

This piece was painted by some good friends of mine at Stan Portley's, over in London. Thanks for sharing!!

As always, thank YOU for sharing your projects with me - I love showing off all your hard work and creativity!
