What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday friends!

We have been busy painting away at the studio - and looks like you have been busy too! 

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

First up this week is a double punch of colour for two lucky girls! Check out these sweet desks that were restyled using Fusion Mineral Paint in Coral and Prairie Sunset!

How cute is that?!

Natacha picked up these desks second hand, swung by our studio to pick up some fun paint colours and wasted no time restyling these sweet desks! What lucky daughters you have Natacha! I'm sure they are happy to have a pretty little spot to do their homework now that school is back in session! 

Here's a look at Natacha's desks 'before':

Great job Natacha - thanks for sharing! Looking forward to seeing what pretty colour you choose for your next project!

Next up this week is a very creative project using a dresser to create a one-of-a-kind stereo cabinet. Patricia removed the dresser drawers to create shelves instead - such a great idea, especially when one or two of the drawers are 'wonky'.

This dresser was painted using van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Dark Night', a deep rich blue.

And can you see that pretty pattern on the side of the dresser?

That is paintable wallpaper - yes, that's right, a wallpaper you can paint! Patricia got very creative with this piece and applied paintable wallpaper to the side panels - which looks very pretty and would be an awesome trick to cover up damaged veneer! Here's a look at the dresser with the wallpaper applied, but before painting:

and here's a look at the dresser 'before' completely:

Such a unique restyle Patricia - thank you for sharing! I think I need to get my hands on some of that wallpaper - it looks so fun!

Last but not least this week is a pretty pop of red on this sweet dresser restyled by Laurel. The colour 'Lipstick' from our van Gogh Fossil paint gives this piece just the right amount of punch and pretty! Beautiful job Laurel - thank you for sharing with us!

Aha moments! {corner cabinet}

Another post in the "Aha moments!" series :)

In this series, we take all the guess work out of restyling furniture! We start by showing you a piece of furniture (or in this case a pair) that we have available in our studio inventory - and then we'll show you some similar pieces that have already been restyled to help get your creative juices flowing. How fun is that?

This week we are showcasing this corner cabinet:

This corner cabinet we found over at the Golden Sycamore is absolutely gorgeous restyled in Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint! And to think this was a side of the road find that was almost completely overlooked!!

Sharing a couple more images because I just love it so much!

Here's a bright and cheerful version of a painted corner cabinet. We found this one over at 2 Little Superheroes. What started as an inexpensive craigslist find has turned into a conversation piece in this colourful kitchen (check out her kitchen chairs all painted in different colours too!)

Speaking of colourful - I LOVE the colour of this next cabinet! Take a look at this gorgeous coral cabinet we found at Jessi Makes Things. . . 

Honestly I love this pop of coral in a more neutral kitchen! I have been thinking about and talking about painting my dining chairs in 'Flamango' a vibrant coral from the van Gogh paint line for weeks now . . . might be time to take the plunge!! (you know, in all my spare time, lol!)

Another version of this corner cabinet painted out in softer shades was found over at Cottage Instincts. I love how the blue interior really helps to showcase the pretty white dish ware.

Last but not least is what I would call a country shabby chic version of a corner cabinet restyled by At The Picket Fence. Soft and sweet, you can't really ever go wrong with a soft white and a soft grey. 

Now that you have seen a few different styles of restyled corner cabinets, tell us - which is your favourite?

Wasn't that fun?

If you were to restyle this corner cabinet (or have us do it for you), which style would you go with?

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Share day!  Here's a peak at some of the inspiring projects you have been working on - thanks for sharing!

First up, Ahsley restyled this cute little dresser after a trip to Mango Reclaimed - great styling Ash!

Ashley also restyled this adorable cupboard over the summertime - I wish we could see the whole finished piece because I LOVE the colour!

Liz attended a van Gogh 101 workshop recently and promptly went home to restyle this cute wash stand. It looks light and fresh painted out in van Gogh's 'chalk'. Nice work!

Some people restyle from bold to neutral and some like to restyle from neutral to bold - I love it all! This sideboard was restyled by Lee using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint in Mustard Seed Yellow and now makes a bold and beautiful statement in her home! This was Lee's first crack at using milk paint, and although she was presented with a few challenges, the result is stunning! Thanks for sharing Lee!

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

If you have restyled something in your home using products from Mango Reclaimed and want to be featured on What'cha workin' on Wednesday?!?, please e-mail your before and after pictures to [email protected]. Looking forward to hearing from you!
