Well, hello all!
It is a sunny but very chilly day here in Ontario. And I'm going to make chili for dinner, so we're not so chilly. Yum. Such a perfect winter food.
I'm featuring a few pieces of furniture today, odds and ends. I have before pictures for only one of them, as the other three pieces were store pieces I painted on the premises and did not have my camera with me.
First off is an accent table I painted Old White on the bottom and Duck Egg Blue on top, finished with clear wax.
I had been wanting to do something with a wreath and a bee for a while now and this round table was perfect for it.
I used a Martha Stewart Stencil to trace the design and then I painted it by hand, adding my own details to Mr. Bee.
Here is a sofa table I repainted in Old White and French Linen:
I spray painted the handles in Oiled Rubbed Bronze. I like the contrast.
But it had great legs and it was solid.
Just an ugly colour.
First off, I painted it in Versailles.
Hmmm, that didn't click with me. I don't know what it was. At least the ugly paint treatment was gone!
I then repainted it in Country Grey. It still didn't click, until I realized it wasn't the paint colour, it just needed some highlighting, which I did on the legs and the skirt using Old Ochre.
I then used a mix of clear and dark wax to deepen the colours a bit, followed by some distressing. Much better!
Voilà! These are just a few of the projects that have been keeping me busy at the store.
