Chivalry coffee table, Balsamic bedside tables and a Mustard Seed Yellow coat rack.

Here are some oldies but goodies. I can't believe I haven't shared these yet! Sorry folks!

These are a few custom orders we did a few months back, starting with this hexagon coffee table. What once looked dated now looks elegant painted in van Gogh 'Chivalry'. 

Mild distressing overall followed by a combination of natural and french caffeine beeswax add some character and warmth to this beautiful cool grey colour.

These bedside tables were quite honestly a bit of a challenge for me. They were selected to be custom restyled from our inventory for their low profile and ample storage. I do love the lines of them - (we still have the long and low dresser and mirror available if your interested - or if you just want to see what these looked like before). It's not often that I am asked to paint pieces out in brown so I was a tad skeptical, but the van Gogh 'Balsamic' with french caffeine beeswax really makes these bedside tables look rich and I love how they turned out!

Lastly for today is this hall tree that we had in the studio. Originally I had been using it to hang bags and merchandise by the checkout but when a customer asked if it was for sale, I said 'of course'. They requested it be painted in Mustard Seed Yellow from the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint line which is a colour that I truly love. Once complete my customer provided their own hooks to be added as well as some sweet smaller hooks so their grandchildren could hang their coats as well. Love!

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!

Chevron Dresser Restyled and Revealed

Hello! Some of you may have been following us along on Facebook or Instagram - if you have, you will know that I have been working away on another custom restyled dresser. This 9 drawer dresser was handed down the family line when it came to rest in my customers spare bedroom. With an idea for the type of look she wanted to create, my customer brought in the dresser with an inspiration picture which she found on Pinterest and came from this post over at 'A Little Glass Box'.

I loved the idea my customer was going for and was excited to tackle a chevron patterned dresser! We collaborated on colours in the Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint line and decided on using 'grain sack' overall with a 'mustard seed yellow' chevron pattern for 6 of the nine drawers.


I think it turned out really beautiful. I love the colour, I love the pattern and I love the minimal amount of distressing that was applied before the hemp oil finish. This dresser will go back in the spare bedroom of my customers home for now and it will look stunning up against the grey walls and on the hardwood floors . . . and if in the future that spare bedroom happens to transition into a nursery, well this cute (and gender neutral) dresser will fit quite nicely in that space as well :)

This dresser has recessed handles built right into the drawer fronts, which means we didn't need to add any hardware that would have distracted from the design.

Here's how we got there. A short slideshow of the 'how to', showing the dresser as it arrived, after being sanded cleaned and prepped, the first overall coats of milk paint, the taping out of the chevron pattern and the final product.
