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?!?

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!
