What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Hi there!

How's your week going so far?!? Can you believe it's November already?!?

The holidays will be here before we know it and we're getting into the spirit of things with our upcoming holiday workshops! Including our Holiday Makers Day on November 18th where we will be creating 4 beautiful festive decor items in one super fun day! Check out our workshop schedule by clicking here!

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

First up this week is a beautiful desk restyled by Carrie using our van Gogh Fossil paint. 'Mascara' is the perfect slate grey - I really love this colour on honestly just about everything! I LOVE the gold hardware on this little desk and the styling here is just perfect for the coming holidays! Great job Carrie!

Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Kathie reclaimed a desk recently too! Instead of painting this little cutie she decided to use our stain and finishing oil overall to give it new life, and it looks great!

I love how the oil brings out the grain of the wood - and the best part is that with a finishing oil built right in this can be done in one step! (no top coat required)

Here is a look at Kathie's much darker and quite worn looking desk 'before':

Great job on this Kathie - thank you for sharing with us!

Last up this week (but certainly not least) is another beautiful desk restyled by Heather. Heather used van Gogh Fossil paint in 'Zeppelin' grey for the base of this desk and spent some extra care on the top by applying our stain and finishing oil in 'Ebony' for a super classy look! I love how this turned out - beautiful as always Heather!

What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday friends!

Wow - we have some beauties to share this week! And there seems to be a theme happening, lol. All of our shares this week include restyled pieces where our clever customers have painted out some of their piece and preserved the wood finish of other parts. Always a beautiful combination! Take a look and tell us what you think!

First up this week is a beautiful desk restyled by Vicki! The base of this desk looks black in the picture but is actually a really dark and rich blue called Artissimo from our Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint line. The top of this desk was sanded to the raw wood and then Vicki applied MMS Hemp Oil as a natural and stunning protective finish! Love how this turned out!!

Here's a look at Vicki's desk 'before':

What a beautiful job you did Vicki - thank you so much for sharing with us! LOVE the new 'cup pull' hardware too - nice finishing touch!

Next up this week is a bedroom set restyled by Jennifer. This set was gifted to Jennifer from her Grandfather and was her first attempt at restyling - I think she did a great job!

Jennifer used our Fusion Mineral paint in 'Champlain' to restyle the bases of her set and left the dresser and table tops just how they were. Take a look:

Here's a look at Jennifer's bedroom set 'before', it looks so much lighter and brighter now that it's been restyled! 

Thanks for sharing Jennifer!

Next up this week is a stunning cabinet restyled by Jane!  I mean - wow, take a look!

This was a beautiful cabinet to begin with, but now that it's been restyled it has been taken to a whole new level! I LOVE how Jane chose to paint some areas using Fusion Mineral paint in 'Coal Black' and also chose to stain some areas with our Stain and Finishing Oil in 'Ebony'. Such a beautiful combination! Great job Jane - thank you so much for sharing your work with us (again, lol)!! 

Here is a look at Jane's cabinet 'before':

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!

NatachasDeskAfterFusionCoral.jpg

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!
