First up is this cute little desk restyled by Anjalie:

Such a fun and bright colour, don't you think?!? Flamango is one of our temporary colours in the van Gogh Fossil paint line and I just LOVE it! I really, really want to paint my dining room chairs this colour but just haven't had the chance yet . . . honestly, what do I do with my time, lol!?!

Anjalie didn't just use a fun colour on the outside of this desk, she also painted out the drawers! The soft and pretty yellow 'Empathy' looks great with Flamango!

Here's a look at the desk before . . . 

Great job Anjalie! I love that you really went for it with colour - thanks for sharing! Now what colour are you going to paint the chair??

Next up this week is this awesome restyled VarageSale find:

But lets get real here - this isn't what the cabinet looked like when Kathie scooped it up for $50! With the help of her young daughter, some paint and a vision, these two restyled this cabinet into a work of art! 

I mean seriously guys, how cute is Emily - and such a great helper!

Here's a look at what this cabinet looked like before they got their hands on it:

I would say these ladies did an awesome job - can you believe that both of these restyles were first time projects?? That's right! First. Time. Projects.

'Morning Mist' dining room reveal! {part 2}

Happy Tuesday!

Today I'm going to share a few more pictures from the dining room I revealed last week.

If you missed the first reveal, you can see it by clicking here.

So, last week we saw this picture, but I didn't really get into any detail about the gorgeous cabinet in the background. . .

You know . . . this one:

This cabinet was painted using van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Morning Mist' on the exterior and 'Cashmere' for the interior of the hutch. I also used the van Gogh liquid metals in 'Wedding Band' & 'Honyemoon' to really beautify the hardware . . . 

The cabinet exterior was finished with natural furniture wax overall and antiquing wax to highlight all of the decals and recessed details.

Speaking of details . . .

One more angle from across the table . . .

My client didn't waste any time moving into her new dining space and I really love how she has so beautifully styled all of her dishes in the lighted hutch!

Ok, now take a glimpse across the table to the other side . . . do you see that hint of soft warm grey?!

This buffet was a piece that my client sourced outside of the studio and brought to me to complete with the rest of the set I was already working on.

I LOVE this piece and am so grateful for being given creative reign to resyle it as I saw fit. I knew a hit of soft warm grey (van Gogh's 'Zepplin') would really help round out all of the light cream and white in this room. 

What do you think?

We did a similar treatment to the hardware, sprucing them up with van Gogh liquid metals in 'Honeymoon' and 'Wedding Band', to help tie the hutch and buffet together.

Mild distressing as well as natural and antiquing wax overall complete the soft and slightly worn in look. You know how I love the details :)

I used van Gogh's 'Table Top Finish' for the top of the buffet (as I also did for the dining table top). This is a really durable finish so that my client can feel confident actually using this buffet to serve guests without worrying about ruining the piece.

Now that we've seen all the prettiness that has come of this dining set - let's take a quick peek at the cabinet 'before':

and here's the buffet:
