What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Let's take a look at what'cha been workin' on . . . 

Joss restyled this buffet, new paint, new hardware and a natural wood top - beautiful! 

With a 3yr old and a 3 month old at home it's amazing she can get anything done! That's what makes this buffet restyle even more impressive! Way to go moms!! Thanks for sharing this Joss, it looks great!

Can you believe that during nap time Joss also got these two projects under her belt?! (cute painted shelf and mirror)

Thanks again for sharing Joss!

Next up, check out Christine's restyled chair painted in van Gogh's beautiful and vibrant 'Coral Cosmo'! I really love a pop of coral, and I'm actually considering painting out my dining room chairs in our new coral 'Flamango'. What do you think? Should I go for it??

Thanks for sharing Christine - I LOVE it!

I think most of you probably already know how boring this chair looked before this awesome colour, but just in case you can't picture it, let's have a look at the 'before':

Thanks so much for sharing Christine!

Just for fun, lets look at one more brightly restyled piece. This sweet little bookshelf was restyled by Elizabeth using van Gogh's 'Dreams of Provence' - a great purple for any girls room! 

Very Cute! Thanks so much for sharing Elizabeth!

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

There's still room for a few more!

Hello there! I hope you have enjoyed a nice long weekend with family and friends!

The spring air, the sunshine and the workshops at Mango Reclaimed have everyone bursting with inspiration and creativity. . . using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint is a great way to restyle your furniture to create something completely unique for your home. We still have room for a few more people in this Wednesday's class.

Check out these two lovely restyles done using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint. First up is this great storage filled hutch. Great for a kitchen, hallway, front entryway . . . anywhere in the home really! With the right amount of chippy distressing and stunning new hardware, this piece is the perfect mix of old and new.

Painted in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint 'Ironstone' and 'Trophy'. This hutch is currently available for $895.

Painted in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint 'French Enamel' and 'Grain Sack', this shelving unit is currently available for $525.

Restyled! Milk Paint lovelies.

How's your holiday shopping going? If you're like me - you're only about half done at this point . . . it's so hard to find the time! Don't panic, it will all come together as it should - it usually does.

How about a few pretty pictures to calm your mind. . .

I love this shelf! Milk painted in Mustard Seed Yellow and Grain Sack it's perfect for just about any room in the house. Seriously.

A beautiful pop of colour in your entryway (with storage for keys, mitts, shoes) . . . stylish storage for towels in the bathroom / linens in the hallway or laundry room / dining room platters and dishes / toy storage or even as a change table in baby's room.

This shelf has it's original hardware, is beautifully distressed and completely versatile.  If someone doesn't pick her up soon I might just take her home with me :)

 

Ok, now how about these bedside tables? Again milk painted and beautifully distressed in the chippy awesome way that only milk paint can do. These stunners are 50's era solid built bedside tables with plenty of storage. They've been painted in Ironstone and Dried Lavender, and the original hardware was given a restyle using twine to soften the look. Love!

A hutch, a rocking chair and a shelf . . .

Hi there! I hope you're enjoying your week.  I have had a great time working at the studio pulling things together, working on some custom orders, and also working on some pieces for the Mango Reclaimed showroom.

I wanted to share with you a few recently completed pieces that will be available for purchase once we open.  Yes I realize this is a random selection of furniture but aren't we all a little bit random sometimes?  

This hutch was chalk painted using van Gogh paint in the colours 'chivalry' and 'chalk'. It was lightly distressed and then sealed with van Gogh 'french caffeine' beeswax. I love how it turned out!  (Soon to be available for sale from Mango Reclaimed, $575)

Please disregard the background - this hutch would look much better in a dining room, kitchen or hallway / foyer!

Here is a sweet little rocking chair chalk painted using van Gogh paint in 'patina'. This was also lightly distressed and then sealed with the van Gogh 'french caffeine' beeswax. Just perfect for reading story books or watching cartoons. (Soon to be available for sale from Mango Reclaimed, $75)

A sweet little chair for a sweet little person.

And finally a great shallow shelf chalk painted in 'patina' and 'muse'. This piece was distressed and then sealed using Miss Mustard Seed's hemp oil. A shelf great for knick knacks, small toys . . . (Soon to be available for sale from Mango Reclaimed, $55)

Inspired by the beauty of a grassy field and a blue sky - this shelf would look great in any home.
