What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there!

Happy Wednesday!

For those of you with little ones that have gone back to school . . . congratulations! You've finally got some time to paint that project you've been thinking about, lol! Oooh and fall is in the air - there's nothing like the pang of September and a slight crispness in the air that  gets me itching for a new creative project! How about you??

For those of you lucky enough to carve out some time over the summer to refresh your furniture, let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on, shall we?!?

First up this week is a beautiful kitchen set that Lynne restyled. van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Zeppelin' grey looks great on this set, don't you think?

Normally I'm not a big advocate of painting the chair frames and leaving the seats natural - with one exception . . .when the seats are a nice rattan like this. Great choice Lynne! I would have done the same thing - and the warmth of the natural rattan can now really be appreciated!

Here is a look at Lynne's kitchen set 'before':

Beautiful work Lynne - thanks for sharing with us!

Next up this week is a sweet dresser restyled using Fusion Mineral paint in 'Champlain' by Sherri Ann! Wow this turned out fantastic! The top sanded out and re-stained looks incredible and the new hardware looks great too!

Here is a look at Sherri Ann's dresser 'before', as you can see it was in serious need of a restyle!

Beautiful work Sherri Ann - thank you so much for sharing your project with us!

Last up this week, but never least is a super creative project by Rise! This beautiful and completely unique hall table was created using table legs picked up from the 'as is' inventory in our studio. Sometimes a small or unique space calls for a creative solution and Rise did a fantastic job with this one! Once her table was assembled (with a new top added), she painted the whole thing out in van Gogh's 'Cashmere' for a uniform and soft look. Stunning!

Here's the part you won't believe - the before picture. These legs were originally for a much larger dining table, but in the end they make the perfect pretty base to a custom made and painted hall console table. I love it!

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there friends! 

It's that time of the week again - my favourite day to share all the great projects you have been working on! I think we should just go ahead and call this weeks post: 'kitchen makeover Wednesday' - boy do we have some great restyles to show you this week!

First up this week is a kitchenette restyled by Danaka. Can I let you in on a secret? Danaka has never used our paints before! After visiting our studio for some tips and advice, she picked up a can of Billowing Sails from our van Gogh paint line to try her hand at restyling a hall table. . . .

well my friends, the project looked so great when she was done that she carried on to paint her kitchen table and chairs! Have a look:

This set looks beautiful! I can't believe Danaka was a first timer! I'm so glad she had faith in herself to tackle these projects! Let's have a look at her table and chairs 'before':

It's a cute set, but painting out the wood in Billowing Sails just completely lightened and brightened her whole space! Great job Danaka - thank you so much for sharing with us!

Oh! And let's have a look at the sweet hall table that was truly her first project:

Can you believe she painted all of these pieces with just one can of van Gogh paint??

Proud of you Danaka and thankful that you shared with us! Your discount is waiting :)

Next up this week Joy did a fantastic job transforming this little dining set! She used Fusion Mineral paint in Homestead blue on the chairs and a soft white for the table! New bold and colourful fabric on the seats really pulls the look together! Great job Joy - thank you so much for sharing!

I really love that rich colour on those chairs!

Here's a look at Joy's chairs 'before', they were cute - but dated. The new look is fantastic!

Thanks again for sharing Joy - your discount is waiting!

Next up this week is a project that Laura completed a little while ago. She also used Fusion Mineral paint to transform a kitchen set. How beautiful is this table and chairs all restyled in Champlain??

Great job Laura - thanks for sharing with us! 

Let's have a quick look at her table and chairs 'before':

The whole kitchen set looks so much fresher with this soft white added to the mix!

Beautiful work!

What'cha workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday friends!

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

First up this week is a beautiful restyle by Helene. Just look at this pretty cabinet! Helene restyled this cabinet using van Gogh Fossil paint in Pyjama Weather (a soft warm grey) on the exterior and Cashmere (a soft creamy neutral) on the interior. . . and it looks great!

Just beautiful! I love how the inside is lighter to really showcase the glass doors and the original hardware looks perfect!

Let's take a look at this cabinet 'before':

Great bones, but dark and dated! Helene picked up this cabinet from our studio 'as is' and did a great job giving it a new look! Want one like this?!? We have one more available in the studio now :)

Thanks for sharing Helene! Great job!

Next up this week is a restyled duo by Julianne. A sweet child's rocker and book holder were given a great new look with van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Stormy Skies' and 'Chalk'. How adorable is this little set?!

Let's take a look at what these two looked like 'before':

Oh my! These are all too familiar, lol! Who doesn't have something like these lying around in the basement, or cottage that could look so much better with some paint???

Thank you for sharing your projects and for the inspiration Julianne - your discount is waiting :)

Last up this week, but definitely not least is a gorgeous cabinet restyle by Jane. Using Fusion Mineral paint in 'Coal Black' and van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Serenity', Jane gave this cabinet a whole new lease on life!

So classy looking!

Let's take a look at this cabinet 'before':

Great job on this Jane! Love the colour choices - looks beautiful!
