I remember when we first moved from our previous shop to our present one – we had more room than I knew what to do with. Now, less than two years later, we are utilizing every corner of that space.
Typically that hasn’t been an issue, I consider myself a really good space utilizer, but I found myself up against a wall (or lack of one) when I tried to figure out where I was going to display our new line of paints – Caromal Colour’s Monahan Botanical Collection
What is Botanicals?
The Botanicals are luscious and creamy paints inspired by the enchanting gardens of Europe. They are designed to bring a similar beauty into your lifestyle by enhancing your furniture, cabinets, and accessories with a gorgeous matte, chalky luster.These paints are incredibly easy to use, brilliantly versatile in application, and wonderfully durable. Even if you have no experience, you can achieve a stunning array of custom finishes in your home.They flow and cover beautifully, sand like a dream for distressing and don’t require wax to finish.The paints are water based, non-toxic, and perfect over any clean, dry, surface – wood (raw, painted, varnished), metal, glass, plastic, tile, masonry, withno stripping, sanding, or priming.
The showcase side in progress
There is floor space for smaller painted items, which is always a plus -
Not only paints, but lovely authentic aged papers ,
even the backs look old
There were so many to choose from it took me a long while to decide- we should see them arriving in the next week or two. The size is nice, most are 11″ x 17″ , some 13″ x 19″ – I’ll see which draws more interest, and follow the lead -
You can decorate a wall with them, or line inside dresser drawers, or decorate the outside drawer
I love how these turned out -
This post went too long and there are too many photos tied to the painting of this end table,
So I’m posting all of those on its own. Find it here, Botanical Table Step by Step .
This post will be live in two days – Wednesday, October 1st. If you click on it before then it will say its private.
Tomorrow our local TV station is bringing a crew to tape our first episode of monthly DIY paint related how-tos – if I don’t blow it, and they like how it goes, we could be doing monthly segments. The coolest thing about it is, they post links to youtube for their tapings, so I think I’ll be able to share those with all of you! Wish me luck, the first one has a holiday flavor, and I’ll be demonstrating Gold Leafing and Foiling :)
