What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday!

Does anyone else have spring fever?!?

You know, that feeling that you just gotta paint everything, haha?!?

Well then, let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

First up this week Christine used 'Carter' from our van Gogh paint line to restyle this sweet toy chest for her son . . . and I'm so glad she did! What a great colour!

This project was actually painted out in 'Starry Night' first and then overpainted in 'Carter'. Can you see some of that nice blue peaking out where Christine distressed this piece?

Such a great job on this - thanks for sharing (your discount is waiting)!

Here's a look a the toy chest 'before':

Next up this week is a sweet restyled desk by Anajalie. 'Chivalry' is a nice light grey from our van Gogh paint line - it looks gorgeous on practically everything and the coverage of this colour is amazing!

Good choice having glass cut for the top of this desk Anajalie - this will keep the top in perfect shape for you! Thanks for sharing (your discount is waiting!)

Here is a look at her desk 'before':

Last but certainly not least this week are some adorable tables painted by Tracy using 'Liberty blue' on the base and 'Algonquin' on the tops - two great colours from our Fusion Mineral paint line! More comfortable with soft neutrals, Tracy went a bit outside of her comfort zone with these, and is glad she did (me too)! The coffee table also got a quick restyle with the base painted in 'Algonquin'

Your whole space looks great Tracy! Thank you for sharing! (your discount is waiting)!

Here's another look at one of Tracy's side tables where you can better see the colour. Can you believe these were a yard sale find (tis the season)!?! Fantastic!

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]

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday friends!

Dare I say it?!? Spring is finally here! It's sunny and beautiful outside as I write this and the forecast looks good! Time to start cleaning and shuffling things around at home. I don't know about you, but for me this always means making some changes. What better way to do that then hitting an old piece of furniture with a fresh coat of paint?!?

Let's take a look at what'cha been working on, shall we?

First up this week is a beautifully restyled dresser by Penny. I'm a big fan of using two tones when it comes to furniture with great structural lines like this one: 

I love the combination of white and grey paired with the original hardware! With these pretty neutral colours (Halo and Chivalry from our van Gogh Fossil paint collection) this piece will look great in any room! You did a great job on this Penny - thank you so much for sharing your project!

Here's a peak at the 'before'. You can see the wood veneer was a bit rough in a few places and even needed some small repair before painting, but can you believe this dresser was a $5 yard sale purchase?!? Tis the season my friends - get out there and find yourself a painting project, lol!

Next up this week is this funky little cabinet restyled by Linda using Zepplin grey from our van Gogh Fossil paint line. Here is a look at the 'before' and 'after':

This looks great Linda! Zepplin is one of my favourite 'go to' colours right now - everything just looks fantastic in Zepplin! Thank you so much for sharing these pictures with us!

Last up be definitely not least this week is this great little cabinet restyled by Christina. Unsure of what colour to use on this piece Christina entrusted the staff at our studio to help her choose this beautiful blue. We love consulting on colours and finishes so don't be shy in picking our brains when you're in the studio! Lots of customers bring in inspiration pictures of pictures of their home, even fabric samples and paint swatches . . . it's so fun to be able to customize a piece to really suit your home and decor!

This pretty blue looks great on this cabinet and the mild distressing and natural finish enhance the original character! Great job on this Christina - thank you for sharing your work with us! 

Here is a look at the 'before' of this cabinet.

Thanks again for sharing your projects with us!

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

First of all woah!! 

Thank you so much for all of the amazing people who have submitted resumes for the part time position at Mango Reclaimed! We have been inundated with interested candidates as well as words of encouragement and support as our business grows! Thank you!!

 . . . and we all know it's Wednesday, so let's get down to business and take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!

It seems that the 'it' item to restyle right now is a hutch! So this week were doing a hutch roundup to show off all your handiwork!

First up this week is Alyssa's hutch painted with confidence in 'Confidence' - a beautiful vibrant jewel toned blue from the van Gogh collection! I love how bold this colour choice was - it always pays off to just go with your gut and use a colour you love! 

I'm pretty certain that every time Alyssa walks into her room and sees this hutch her heart smiles a little bit . . . thanks for sharing Alyssa!

Next up is a similar hutch restyled by someone with a similar name - but done in a completely different style! This next hutch was restyled by Elisa also using van Gogh chalk based paint, but this time in soft neutrals. On this restyle Elisa used 'Chivalry' (a soft beautiful grey), and 'Cashmere' (a soft beautiful cream)! Gorgeous - and the colourful accents pop! Thanks for sharing Elisa!

A look at Elisa's hutch 'before' her beautiful restyling work:

This next hutch is VERY similar to the one restyled by Elisa and also done using van Gogh's beautiful 'Chivalry' grey . . . the difference this time is that Lee added a soft pop of colour right into the hutch by painting the interior of the upper cabinet and the hardware in 'Patina' (a very popular and very pretty soft blue/green). Love it! Thanks for Sharing Lee!

Here's a peak at the 'before' . . .

Aida tackled this next hutch as her first restyling project and I think she did a great job! Knowing that she had white dishes to showcase, she chose a dark colour for the interior and it turned out beautiful! Thank you for sharing Aida!

Here's the base of Aida's cabinet 'before' . . . you know when you're just too excited to start painting and then you remember you haven't taken a 'before' picture yet?!?

Yah, me too - I do it all the time, lol!

Last up this week, but never least is this stunning cabinet restyled by Erin. This cabinet was purchased after being spotted in our online inventory! Erin wasted no time getting it home, painted, styled and photographed - and she did a fantastic job! Restyled using Fusion Mineral Paint in 'Ash' and 'Bedford' this hutch now looks super classy! Thanks for sharing Erin!
