Resurection Sunday, New Life.

When I was a kid Easter was more about waking to an egg hunt, eating chocolates and jelly beans, and wearing a new hat and tights to church.    As an adult it changes,  I can’t get through Holy Week without kleenex in my purse.

I’ve been doing a bit of soul searching this last couple months…  without even realizing it, trying to figure out WHAT is going on in my life and how to have some semblance of order… do you ever get to a point where you are certain your priorities aren’t in order?

priorities-wheel

I dedicate a lot, lot, lot, and more, of my time and effort to my business.  Being self employed demands that, and I’m all in – at least I love what I do.   Equally important for me is building a customer base online, after all, part of my business consists of the revenue from outbound shipping to our customers that shop for their paint needs online.

My blog will be six years old this year , with almost 1200 posts to date.   Can you believe?  I’ve always loved sharing stories, ideas, photos.  Ask anyone that blogs and they’ll tell you-   creating a post takes time – some posts take several days to finish, depending on how many pictures I’m sharing.    Yes, creating posts takes commitment and time,   but in the end my time and efforts pay off, as I’ve met many online customers this way.

I want to continue posting and sharing,  and answering questions that my customers pose – but I need to draw the line – and please don’t be offended by this –   if I don’t set limits here, then I’ll be no good for anyone -

If you are here to get ideas, learn about products, techniques,  BUT purchase your product needs from somewhere else,  I hope my blog can help you.  Grab a cup of coffee, and peruse the posts, the categories or search box can help direct you to something more specific,  but YOU need to take YOUR time to read through the posts, because more than likely you will find your answers there.  If you can’t find what you are looking for,  then you really need to pose your questions to the retailer you purchased your paints from.

I can’t begin to tell you how many emails and calls I get from readers, asking simple questions, complex questions,  or design advice about a specific paint that they purchased from their local retailer.      WHY ARE YOU NOT ASKING THE RETAILER YOU ARE BUYING THE PAINTS FROM????  Sorry, but it is our responsibility, as retailers, to be educated and informed so we can confidently support our customer base.

While I’d LOVE to continue answering these questions,  I don’t have enough hours in my day  –    not without slighting the customers that do order from me,  and not without stealing the little bit of precious family time, and Patty time that I need in my life, in order to keep hold of my sanity.

question-mark1

If you have no desire to shop with us, but are still interested in asking for my design / product advise -  email me requesting a good time to hook up, via a phone consult, and we can schedule a session that works for both of us.  I would be happy to answer your questions, and  I charge for my time and expertise.    My standard rate is $100/hour, and will be charged in 15 minute increments.

So where have I been hiding the last month?   Store, workshops, getting through year end tax preparation,  starting to realize the many obligations required for a graduating senior,   one being a Spring Break to Riveria Maya, Mexico -

IMG_3066

we went along, knocking out some marketing work, and spent our free time in a chair by the pool, dodging teenagers :)

IMG_2977

It was nice to get away,  I came home with a horrible case of sun poisoning and am STILL itching like a mad woman.   I feel like someone has a voodoo doll of me and they’re poking pins in my upper back – it’s been over a week since I’ve been in the sun,  that irritation needs to go away!

Last week we rolled right into two workshops

IMG_3251

and two more are coming up this week – it’s that time of year when people (and  tired furniture) come out hibernation  :)    We’ve got three paint-a-piece workshops scheduled in May, two are sold out and the third almost…   I’ll be working this week on our summer schedule -

Cabinet Painting Workshop

Tomorrow begins my computer and camera memory stick’s SPRING CLEAN.

aI’ve got so many projects piled up to share,  and I’m in the process of changing over from PC to MAC  (bare with me)  – my goal is to get all these prior projects posted here, so I can start clean and fresh off my new computer. ( the next goal after that, to learn how to maneuver a MAC!)

Have a great week,  He has Risen, Alleluia!

A Vintage Chair’s Clay Mineral Chalk Paint Foiled By Fabric

Our silly story begins ….

index

with this old CHAIR

DSC_0938

It was soon after our foils arrived

fabulous finishes paint studio, shelby township michigan,  american paint company , clay mineral chalk paint, metallic foils, painting chair, waxing chalk clay mineral paint, patty henning,  vintage wax, black mica powder, workshops paint a piece, buy diy paints shop.fabfinishercomI was looking to use them anywhere, everywhere, so this ugly vinyl chair seat was a great start -   I rolled on a coat of Sticky Size , and waited for the milky color to go away

DSC_0941

Like this -

DSC_0942

then I grabbed one of our new Metallic Foil Patterns - Pewter Bark,  and transferred it to the seat using a scrub brush

fabulous finishes paint studio, shelby township michigan,  american paint company , clay mineral chalk paint, metallic foils, painting chair, waxing chalk clay mineral paint, patty henning,  vintage wax, black mica powder, workshops paint a piece, buy diy paints shop.fabfinishercom

Then I started painting the chair with American Paint Companys Cannonball (a black),  Saddle (a brown), and a little Limoge (cream)

DSC_0945a

Mostly black with some brown, brushed on together…

DSC_0944

Impatient me, fast drying, to see if the color will work…

DSC_0968

Sanding the flat surfaces – optional, but I explain to my customers that this step will take your finish from painted to professional…

No, it’s real name isn’t Fabulous Vintage Wax,  but it should be – it’s the easiest wax I’ve found to use.   Because of it’s all natural  properties, you’ll find no smell or toxins or irritants.   On this chair I used the Vintage Clear Wax and tinted it to two colors , one batch with APC Black Mica and one batch with APC Gold Mica-

DSC_0976

It all went on,  one brush, both colors at a time…    Brush in sparingly, and wipe the excess off -

a few hours later it will be dry enough to buff to a lovely sheen -

If you notice, I’ve only waxed and buffed the top portion… maybe something in my sub conscience was telling me it wasn’t right…

fabulous finishes paint studio, shelby township michigan,  american paint company , clay mineral chalk paint, metallic foils, painting chair, waxing chalk clay mineral paint, patty henning,  vintage wax, black mica powder, workshops paint a piece, buy diy paints shop.fabfinishercom

It was the foiled seat.   I liked the chair finish, but not the foil with it – so I got the Sticky Size back out and gave it another coat  -

fabulous finishes paint studio, shelby township michigan,  american paint company , clay mineral chalk paint, metallic foils, painting chair, waxing chalk clay mineral paint, patty henning,  vintage wax, black mica powder, workshops paint a piece, buy diy paints shop.fabfinishercom

this time I gilded the seat with Copper Leaf-

Copper leaf’d the seat pad

and liked it so much , that I covered it with fabric!

veggie tale

What happened?  Once the paint finish came together,  it changed the whole look, and I noticed how pretty the chair was…. here was a pretty chair with a vinyl pad!    After all, a vinyl pad is a vinyl pad even if its foiled or leaf’d, right?

It hit me  -  I HAD to make the seat pretty

Joey Reclaims His Kitchen Cabinets – The Caromal Colours Way!

This is a great example of  what you can transform an oak kitchen to, with some Reclaim Off White Paint and Antiquing Glaze-

Ms. Henning,

Thank you for your help with all my questions about using the Reclaim paint I purchased through your website!  I am all done and we are thrilled with the results!

Just wanted to share a before pic (from right after we had our new countertops put in before we moved in last year) to show what the cabinets used to look like and a few after ones….thanks again for your help and reassurance along the way!

I used the Reclaim Off White with the Reclaim Antiquing Glaze and ended up using a deglosser because of the waxy finish to the cabinets and everything went great!     Joey
